Does anyone know what Pulumi does to get the json schema for terraform providers (that it uses for code-gen purposes) ?

You're referring to bridged Pulumi providers, which take Terraform providers as an internal dependency. The code that generates the Pulumi schema from the Terraform schema is in the
tfgen
package of `pulumi-terraform-bridge`: https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi-terraform-bridge/tree/master/pkg/tfgen
In any bridged provider, there's a
make tfgen
target that generates `schema.json`: https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi-artifactory/blob/main/Makefile#L22-L25
tfgen
iterates the TF schema and docs and uses them to generate the equivalent Pulumi schema.

ah thanks for pointing me to that
so, where does the terraform schema come from?
I was looking at the terraform aws provider, and I couldn't find where that might be in the repo

It's all over the place. The schema in TF is defined in Go code.

ya, I'm trying to figure out if there's a programmatic way to get it out of a resource
