Specifying Stack Parameters on the AWS CloudFormation Console

After selecting a stack template, you specify parameters defined in the template.

You can use parameters to customize your stack at creation time. Data you enter here can be referred to by logical ID in the stack template and be used to modify how AWS or custom resources are configured. For more information about how parameters are specified in an AWS CloudFormation template, see Parameters.

To enter parameter values for your stack

  1. On the Specify Parameters page of the Create Stack wizard, specify parameters defined in the stack template. Default values might already be present for some parameters.


    You might need to acknowledge some resources before AWS CloudFormation creates your stack, such as IAM resources. For more, information see IAM Resources in AWS CloudFormation Templates in Controlling Access with AWS Identity and Access Management.

  2. When you are satisfied with the parameter values, click Next Step to proceed with setting options for your stack.
