Automated instance configuration changes - AMS Accelerate Operations Plan

Automated instance configuration changes

The AMS Accelerate instance configuration automation makes the following changes:

    2. The Amazon SSM Agent is responsible for running remote commands on the instance. The instance configuration automation ensures that the SSM Agent is running the AMS Accelerate minimum version.

  3. CloudWatch Configuration
