Simplified retrieval methods - AWS AppConfig

Simplified retrieval methods

AWS AppConfig offers several simplified methods for retrieving configuration data. If you use AWS AppConfig feature flags or free form configuration data in an AWS Lambda function, you can use the AWS AppConfig Agent Lambda extension to retrieve configurations. If you have applications running on Amazon EC2 instances, you can use AWS AppConfig Agent to retrieve configurations. AWS AppConfig Agent also supports applications running on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) or Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) container images.

After you complete the initial set up, these methods of retrieving configuration data are simpler than directly calling AWS AppConfig APIs. They automatically implement best practices and may lower your cost of using AWS AppConfig as a result of fewer API calls to retrieve configurations.
