Detect drift on a stack set. When CloudFormation performs drift detection on a stack set, it performs drift detection on the stack associated with each stack instance in the stack set. For more information, see How CloudFormation Performs Drift Detection on a Stack Set
of the stack set drift detection operation. Use this operation id with
to monitor the progress of the drift detection operation. The drift detection operation may take some time, depending on the number of stack instances included in the stack set, as well as the number of resources included in each stack.
Once the operation has completed, use the following actions to return drift information:
DescribeStackSet to return detailed informaiton about the stack set, including detailed information about the last completed drift operation performed on the stack set. (Information about drift operations that are in progress is not included.)
ListStackInstances to return a list of stack instances belonging to the stack set, including the drift status and last drift time checked of each instance.
DescribeStackInstance to return detailed information about a specific stack instance, including its drift status and last drift time checked.

You can only run a single drift detection operation on a given stack set at one time.
To stop a drift detection stack set operation, use
