Hello Everyone, After importing a aws resource(subnet) into pulumi I would like to modify the properties. This leads to replacement. Is this a pulumi thing or an aws thing? I would like to change few properties on the resource...
Copy code
pulumi up
Previewing update (network.staging):
     Type                     Name                                           Plan        Info
     pulumi:pulumi:Stack      pulumi-staging-infrastructure-network.staging              
 +   ├─ pulumi:providers:aws  provider                                       create      
 +-  ├─ aws:ec2:Vpc           vpc-staging                                    replace     [diff: +enableDnsSupport,instanceTenancy~__defaults,protect,provider]
 +-  └─ aws:ec2:Subnet        public_subnet_stvk                             replace     [diff: +assignIpv6AddressOnCreation,enableDns64,enableResourceNameDnsARecordOnLaunch,ena
 
Resources:
    + 1 to create
    +-2 to replace
    3 changes. 1 unchanged

it depends what you’re replacing. Usually a replacement is because the AWS API is immutable
in this case yes, the properties are immutable

So it will delete and recreate...

Yes unfortunately. Can you make that change in the API without a delete and recreate?

I ask because, if you can do it from the console but not Pulumi, that’s a bug if you can’t do it from the console that confirms it’ll delete/replace is expected behavior
