I'm having issues with try/catch in Output.. or maybe the AWS SDK. Or both. Apologies if posting in wrong place. This is to do with
aws.identitystore.getGroup()
.
I'm looking up a group after creating it in Okta. It hasn't yet been synced, and I need to handle this situation.
So I
apply()
my Okta group id and inside, I call
getGroup()
, with the intention of conditionally creating resources that need an identitystore group id inside the
apply()
(yuck, but it looks like it has to be done.
The problem is that when I call
getGroup()
with the group name which doesn't yet exist, it throws an error, and it's not being caught by try-catch.. don't know why, possibly something to do with asynchronicity?
Is there something special I need to do to catch an exception thrown by an AWS SDK call like
getGroup()
, that presumably is async behind the scenes?
Ooo.. probably solved my own query.. it returns a promise so I shouldn't be try-catching, I should be `.catch()`ing...
