is there an automation api to list all stacks for a project?

Not an automation API, but if you are using the Pulumi hosted service as your state backend, you can use their official API: https://www.pulumi.com/docs/reference/service-rest-api/#list-stacks

Why shell out? With Pulumi, you are using code, which means you can use any http library to perform requests against that API.

Because I'm not using the pulumi service?

Sorry, overlooked that in your previous answer.

Which state backend are you using? And which programming language are you using for Pulumi code?

S3 and TypeScript.
The
-j
flag makes parsing simple fwiw.

In your setup, I still would not shell out, but go for a coding approach in which you use the
aws-sdk
library to iterate over the s3 folders in your state bucket: https://www.npmjs.com/package/aws-sdk

Am I being a dummy and misunderstanding the question or does Automation API actually support this? https://www.pulumi.com/docs/reference/pkg/nodejs/pulumi/pulumi/automation/#Workspace-listStacks

@bored-oyster-3147 nice yeah! Very funny to see the actual implementation is exactly how I did it xD
Im unsure how to use that call though. Doesn't seem to be available on
LocalWorkspace
anyways. I am using it like this atm:
Copy code
const stack = await LocalWorkspace.createOrSelectStack(args);

It is not a static function it is an instance function. You must first instantiate a workspace instance
Your example is like a helper function to bypass creating a workspace instance and get a stack instance in one line, but you could either access the workspace with stack.Workspace after doing that or not instantiate a stack and simply instantiate a workspace instead
