AWS::FIS::ExperimentTemplate - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::FIS::ExperimentTemplate

Specifies an experiment template.

An experiment template includes the following components:

  • Targets: A target can be a specific resource in your AWS environment, or one or more resources that match criteria that you specify, for example, resources that have specific tags.

  • Actions: The actions to carry out on the target. You can specify multiple actions, the duration of each action, and when to start each action during an experiment.

  • Stop conditions: If a stop condition is triggered while an experiment is running, the experiment is automatically stopped. You can define a stop condition as a CloudWatch alarm.

For more information, see Experiment templates in the AWS Fault Injection Service User Guide.
