Create a CloudFormation template

Create a CloudFormation template

You can define a template that describes the AWS resources, and any associated dependencies or runtime parameters required to run your application

Before you begin

Role required: cloud_admin or admin


  1. Navigate to Amazon AWS Cloud > CloudFormation > Templates.
  2. Click New.
  3. Enter a Name and Description for the template.
  4. CloudFormation template parameters enable you to pass values into the template at stack-creation time. Parameters let you create templates that can be customized for each stack deployment. To use a JSON template that contains parameters to include in the template, click Use JSON and then enter the template code in the text box.
  5. Optional. Enter the URL of an existing template in the Amazon S3 Template URL text box. The URL should point to an S3 bucket containing a CloudFormation template in JSON format.
  6. Click Submit.
