You wouldn’t need it with terraform either - Pulumi (and Terraform) use the APIs of the clouds directly - so requests are made direct rather than via boto3

I believe that you will need it for any AWS resources that are not managed by Terraform or Pulumi. I’m not sure about Pulumi, but Terraform definitely doesn’t have support for CloudSearch (https://github.com/terraform-providers/terraform-provider-aws/issues/7833) and all evidence suggests they have no plans to do so in the future. Perhaps this is an opportunity for Pulumi to one-up Terraform?
