I guess this is some how related to the previous message, but I still want to ask, is there any option to handle these type of Exceptions from AWS API? I wasn't able to catch this exception with regular
try/except
blocks inside my python code. Any pattern or suggestion? Thanks.

When the engine is doing its work, your code has already completed, so there's nowhere to put the try/catch to catch this. You can use automation-api, but I think that's no yet available in Python?

Oh ok, so is it possible to catch this using automation-api? cool. I think it's only an option for TypeScript and Golang today. I have basic Golang knowledge, I'll try it .. thanks
The automation-api python implementation is on the way (https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi/issues/5299#issuecomment-741234685) really excited about it 🙂

It doesn't seem to be possible with automation-api either. Reading the implementation for golang (https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi/blob/master/sdk/go/x/auto/cmd.go), it uses the
os/exec
package to run the pulumi binary, I don't think this is possible for now
I mean, with automation-api I can identify there was a runtime error (https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi/blob/master/sdk/go/x/auto/errors.go#L107) but I can't
catch
the specific exception from AWS API
I guess I'll need to change the approach and extract the specific exception parsing the
stdout
from the
auto.autoError
object
