Managing Versions - AWS Service Catalog

Managing Versions

You assign product versions when you create a product, and you can update product versions any time.

Versions have an AWS CloudFormation template, a title, a description, a status, and guidance.

Version Status

A version can have one of three statuses:

  • Active - An active version appears in the version list and allows users to launch it.

  • Inactive - An inactive version is hidden from the version list. Existing provisioned products launched from this version will not be affected.

  • Deleted - If a version is deleted, it is removed from the version list. Deleting a version can't be undone.

Version Guidance

You can set version guidance to provide information to end users about the product version. Version guidance only affects active product versions.

There are two options for version guidance:

  • None - By default, product versions don't have any guidance, so end users can use that version to update and launch provisioned products.

  • Deprecated - With a deprecated version, users can make updates to a provisioned product but can't launch new provisioned products using the deprecated version.

Updating Versions

You assign product versions when creating a product, and you can also update a version any time. For more information about creating a product, see Creating Products.
