Updating a Stack on the AWS CloudFormation Console

You can update a stack using the AWS CloudFormation console using the following steps:

Modifying a Stack and Initiating a Stack Update

Before you can update a stack, you must first modify its stack template. To do this, do one of the following:

  • Modify the template that you used to create the stack.

  • Copy the stack template from the Template tab of the stack information pane. To view the stack template, see Viewing Stack Data and Resources.

Starting the Update Stack Wizard

After you have completed your template changes, you are ready to start the Update Stack wizard.

To initiate a stack update using the Update Stack wizard

  1. From the list of stacks in the AWS CloudFormation console, select the running stack that you want to update.

  2. Click Update Stack.

Next, you'll select the stack template that you modified.
