is there a way to enforce order in pulumi execution ? like I want to provision a set of base resources before provisioning databases and want to enforce an order instead of asynchronous execution , is there a way for that ?

two ways: • pass an out from resource A to resource B will ensure resource A is created before resource B • use dependson: https://www.pulumi.com/docs/intro/concepts/resources/options/dependson/

get_secret
as well? why?

so you’ve defined
secret_obj
. it exists in the resource graph. you don’t need to retrieve the value at all, you already have it
you can just pass the value to your RDS database now
