Hi. For aws resources - by default resource names have a unique suffix applied- e.g.
my-resource-name-4d52ea3
. Is it possible to override this to just create
my-resource-name
? My specific example is for a dynamodb table where other existing processes expect an given table name. Migrating to pulumi is easier if these names don't have to change.

Specify a
name
argument on the resource. Otherwise pulumi will do what you’re observing based on the Pulumi resource name - i.e. the first argument.
