Can anyone point me to docs on resource lifecycle? Specifically
create_before_destroy
. Can't find anything on the site or slack search

By default we create the new resource before destroying the old one, but you can override that by using deleteBeforeReplace

Hmm thanks. The docs for
acm.Certificate
say otherwise...is it an exception?

I think that's an error in our docs. I'll raise an issue for it
Yes I've checked this and the docs are wrong for
acm.Certificate
. We create before destroy (and that's why we do the auto-naming with the randomly generate suffix) to minimise the downtime. I've created an issue if you want to track this: https://github.com/pulumi/docs/issues/5084
