Pulumi newbie here - just read about automation API. Is my understanding correct when I say that - earlier pulumi gave a cli with an ability to define infra in your fav prog lang - so the interface to the user was the
pulumi
command and now with automation api -
pulumi
command itself is a lib call and can be wrapped over custom REST APIs to abstract the infra management process?

👋 welcome! Yes that is a pretty good analogy. Previously the Pulumi engine was only exposed via CLI, and now we have made the CLI embeddable so you can call it via Automation API.
