This is due to the auto-naming functionality in Pulumi - https://www.pulumi.com/docs/reference/programming-model/#autonaming. Setting
bucket
will override this functionality and use the exact value you specify.

The auto-naming functionality is helpful for resources that require unique names and you will be replacing at times during deployments. If you don't want this, you can specify a static name like this:
Copy code
const bucket = new aws.s3.Bucket("my-bucket", {
    bucket: "my-bucket",
});

@gentle-diamond-70147, do you think it is worth auto-enabling "deleteBeforeUpdate" for resources with overridden id?

Do you mean
deleteBeforeReplace
? I believe we're doing exactly that with https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi-terraform/issues/383.
