Hi, due to some API limitations, we might need to expose something in plain text in the pulumi runtime. whats the best way, if any, to hide a resource? it will probably be
pulumi local.Command
specifically so it doesnt show in the pulumi logs

Expose something in plain text, but you want to hide it? Are you trying to redact a piece of text?
You could either wrap the input text you need to keep secret using secrets: https://www.pulumi.com/docs/intro/concepts/secrets/#programmatically-creating-secrets Or you could force the return properties of Command to be secret by setting a resource option: https://www.pulumi.com/docs/intro/concepts/resources/options/additionalsecretoutputs/ Either of these should keep your data redacted when printed by the CLI, and still usable by any resources that you pass it into.

@orange-policeman-59119 looks like the second one makes more sense, additional secret outputs. i need to hide the Input which is dynamically getting populated, potentially will have credential info. i know it might sound strange. limitation with Terraform/pulumi and aws right now i have a support ticket running on aws side

To redact sensitive inputs use this (TypeScript here, substitute for the 1st article's API in your language)
Copy code
const someValue = pulumi.ToSecret(x)
And to ensure a resource's outputs are secret, set
additionalSecretOutputs
.

got it. X would be the entire input value?

Typically it would be one property of the input arguments to a resource, but you can use ToSecret on objects, arrays.

in my use case its just a string
