Does anyone know how to pass variables in a local Command (from Pulumi Command package). Should they be passed as environment variables or directly used using string interpolation? When I am using variables from resources previously created, the command fails. when I use hard coded string the command works. Here is my code in case it helps to understand my problem:
var sqlServer = new Server($"sql-sqlDbWithAzureAd-{Deployment.Instance.StackName}", new ServerArgs
ResourceGroupName = resourceGroup.Name,
Administrators = new ServerExternalAdministratorArgs
Login = sqlAdAdmin.UserPrincipalName,
Sid = sqlAdAdmin.Id,
AzureADOnlyAuthentication = true,
AdministratorType = AdministratorType.ActiveDirectory,
PrincipalType = PrincipalType.User,
var database = new Database("sqldb-sqlDbWithAzureAd-Main", new DatabaseArgs
ResourceGroupName = resourceGroup.Name,
ServerName = sqlServer.Name,
Sku = new SkuArgs
Name = "Basic"
var authorizeAdGroup = new Command("AuthorizeAdGroup", new CommandArgs
Create = $"sqlcmd -S {sqlServer.Name} -?",
Interpreter = new InputList<string>
}, new CustomResourceOptions
DependsOn = new InputList<Pulumi.Resource> { enableLocalMachine, database, sqlServer }

Looks like your Create property is using simple interpolation instead of Pulumi interpolation.
isn't a string, it's a string output, so you need handle it as such. I presume that Pulumi golang has an equivalent of the typescript pulumi.interpolate? It takes interpolates a string output into a string and returns a string output that can be used in most Pulumi resource constructors.
