When running a preview there is an output column Plan, The possible values and definitions is hard to find. Can some point point me in the direction?

That's the same as "Operation" when doing an
up
. I think I saw that enum in code once... let me browse..
Nope, can't find it anywhere. Do you have a specific question about Pulumi operations?

I'm configuring a key vault in azure and I noted operations showing the plan as update. While in the present case a drop and rebuild of the key vault in question would be fine, I'm interested in what else I might encounter. What the effects of the various plan decisions are to help me spread the love with my team as we adopt Pulumi. I read about Pulumi dropping databases for example and it would be helpful to say if x with Azure service yy then that's destructive in the change

Update means an in-place change. Other operations are Create, Delete and Replace. Replace is used only when the provider does not support an Update, and a new resource is required.
There are other operations behind the scenes (import, query, sync maybe?), but those are the ones that can end up in the Plan (preview) or Operation (up) column.
