Package ssm provides the client and types for making API requests to Amazon Simple Systems Manager (SSM).
AWS Systems Manager is a collection of capabilities that helps you automate management tasks such as collecting system inventory, applying operating system (OS) patches, automating the creation of Amazon Machine Images (AMIs), and configuring operating systems (OSs) and applications at scale. Systems Manager lets you remotely and securely manage the configuration of your managed instances. A managed instance is any Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud instance (EC2 instance), or any on-premises server or virtual machine (VM) in your hybrid environment that has been configured for Systems Manager.
This reference is intended to be used with the AWS Systems Manager User Guide (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/systems-manager/latest/userguide/).
To get started, verify prerequisites and configure managed instances. For more information, see Setting up AWS Systems Manager (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/systems-manager/latest/userguide/systems-manager-setting-up.html) in the AWS Systems Manager User Guide.
For information about other API actions you can perform on EC2 instances, see the Amazon EC2 API Reference (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/APIReference/). For information about how to use a Query API, see Making API requests (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/APIReference/making-api-requests.html).

To contact Amazon Simple Systems Manager (SSM) with the SDK use the New function to create a new service client. With that client you can make API requests to the service. These clients are safe to use concurrently.
See the SDK's documentation for more information on how to use the SDK. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/
See aws.Config documentation for more information on configuring SDK clients. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/aws/#Config
See the Amazon Simple Systems Manager (SSM) client SSM for more information on creating client for this service. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/service/ssm/#New
The stub package, ssmiface, can be used to provide alternative implementations of service clients, such as mocking the client for testing.
