Package Description

AWS ServiceCatalogAppRegistry Construct Library


cfn-resources: Stable

All classes with the Cfn prefix in this module (CFN Resources) are always stable and safe to use.

cdk-constructs: Experimental

The APIs of higher level constructs in this module are experimental and under active development. They are subject to non-backward compatible changes or removal in any future version. These are not subject to the Semantic Versioning model and breaking changes will be announced in the release notes. This means that while you may use them, you may need to update your source code when upgrading to a newer version of this package.

AWS Service Catalog App Registry enables organizations to create and manage repositores of applications and associated resources.

Table Of Contents

The @aws-cdk/aws-servicecatalogappregistry package contains resources that enable users to automate governance and management of their AWS resources at scale.



An AppRegistry application enables you to define your applications and associated resources. The application name must be unique at the account level, but is mutable.

 Application application = Application.Builder.create(this, "MyFirstApplication")
         .description("description for my application")

An application that has been created outside of the stack can be imported into your CDK app. Applications can be imported by their ARN via the Application.fromApplicationArn() API:

 IApplication importedApplication = Application.fromApplicationArn(this, "MyImportedApplication", "arn:aws:servicecatalog:us-east-1:012345678910:/applications/0aqmvxvgmry0ecc4mjhwypun6i");

Attribute Group

An AppRegistry attribute group acts as a container for user-defined attributes for an application. Metadata is attached in a machine-readble format to integrate with automated workflows and tools.

 AttributeGroup attributeGroup = AttributeGroup.Builder.create(this, "MyFirstAttributeGroup")
         .description("description for my attribute group") // the description is optional,
                 "project", "foo",
                 "team", List.of("member1", "member2", "member3"),
                 "public", false,
                 "stages", Map.of(
                         "alpha", "complete",
                         "beta", "incomplete",
                         "release", "not started")))

An attribute group that has been created outside of the stack can be imported into your CDK app. Attribute groups can be imported by their ARN via the AttributeGroup.fromAttributeGroupArn() API:

 IAttributeGroup importedAttributeGroup = AttributeGroup.fromAttributeGroupArn(this, "MyImportedAttrGroup", "arn:aws:servicecatalog:us-east-1:012345678910:/attribute-groups/0aqmvxvgmry0ecc4mjhwypun6i");


You can associate your appregistry application with attribute groups and resources. Resources are CloudFormation stacks that you can associate with an application to group relevant stacks together to enable metadata rich insights into your applications and resources. A Cloudformation stack can only be associated with one appregistry application. If a stack is associated with multiple applications in your app or is already associated with one, CDK will fail at deploy time.

Associating application with an attribute group

You can associate an attribute group with an application with the associateAttributeGroup() API:

 Application application;
 AttributeGroup attributeGroup;

Associating application with a Stack

You can associate a stack with an application with the associateStack() API:

 Application application;
 App app = new App();
 Stack myStack = new Stack(app, "MyStack");
