Package ssm provides the client and types for making API requests to Amazon Simple Systems Manager (SSM).
Amazon Web Services 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 nodes. A managed node is any Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance, edge device, or on-premises server or virtual machine (VM) that has been configured for Systems Manager.
With support for IoT Greengrass core devices, the phrase managed instance has been changed to managed node in most of the Systems Manager documentation. The Systems Manager console, API calls, error messages, and SSM documents still use the term instance.
This reference is intended to be used with the Amazon Web Services Systems Manager User Guide (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/systems-manager/latest/userguide/).
To get started, verify prerequisites and configure managed nodes. For more information, see Setting up Amazon Web Services Systems Manager (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/systems-manager/latest/userguide/systems-manager-setting-up.html) in the Amazon Web Services Systems Manager User Guide.

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.
