Getting started with myApplications

To get started using myApplications to create, monitor, and mange your applications, use the following steps.

Step 1: Creating an application

Create a new application or onboard an existing AppRegistry application created before November 8, 2023 to get started with myApplications.

Create an application
To create an application
  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console.

  2. Expand the left sidebar and choose myApplications.

  3. Choose Create application.

  4. Enter an application name.

  5. (Optional) Enter an application description.

  6. (Optional) Add tags. Tags are key-value pairs that are applied to resources to hold metadata about those resources.

    Note

    The AWS application tag is automatically applied to newly created applications and can be used to identify resources associated with your application. For more information, see The AWS application tag in the AWS Service Catalog AppRegistry Administrator Guide.

  7. (Optional) Add attribute groups. You can use attribute groups to store application metadata.

  8. Choose Next.

  9. (Optional) Add existing resources:

    Note

    To search and add resources, you must turn on AWS Resource Explorer. For more information, see Getting started with AWS Resource Explorer.

    All added resources are tagged with the AWS application tag.

    1. Choose Select resources.

    2. (Optional) Choose a view.

    3. Search for your resources. You can search by keyword, name or type, or choose a resource type.

      Note

      If you can't find the resource you're looking for, troubleshoot with AWS Resource Explorer. For more information, see Troubleshooting Resource Explorer search issues in the Resource Explorer User Guide.

    4. Select the checkbox next to the resources you want to add.

    5. Choose Add.

    6. Choose Next.

  10. Review your choices.

  11. If associating a AWS CloudFormation stack, select the checkbox at the bottom of the page.

    Note

    Adding a AWS CloudFormation stack to the application requires a stack update because all resources added to your application are tagged with the AWS application tag. Manual configurations performed after the stack was last updated may not be reflected after this update. This can cause downtime or other application issues. For more information, see Update behaviors of stack resources in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.

  12. Choose Create application.
