Creating a control panel in Route 53 ARC - Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller

Creating a control panel in Route 53 ARC

A control panel in Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller lets you group together related routing controls. The benefit of grouping routing controls into one control panel is that you can use safety rules that you create to help safeguard traffic routing changes.

When you create a cluster, Route 53 ARC creates a default control panel. You can use the default control panel for your routing controls, or you can create one or more control panels to group sets of routing controls.

A control panel can have routing controls that represent a microservice within an application, an entire application itself, or a group of applications, depending on the scope of your failover.

The steps in this section explain how to create a control panel on the Route 53 ARC console. To learn about using API operations with Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller, see the Common actions that you can use with Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller.
