Updated console options for cluster scaling - Amazon EMR

Updated console options for cluster scaling

The cluster scaling options in the console have changed. The options are consolidated into one Cluster Scaling section on the Hardware Configuration page in Create Cluster - Advanced Options. The cluster scaling options can also be edited on the Hardware tab of a running cluster.

You can select Use EMR-managed scaling or Create a custom automatic scaling policy when you enable cluster scaling. Use EMR-managed scaling is only available with Amazon EMR version 5.30.0 and later. For more information, see Scaling cluster resources.

The following screenshots show the differences between the previous automatic scaling and the current cluster scaling options in the console.
