Getting Started - AWS Service Catalog

Getting Started

You can get started with AWS Service Catalog by using one of the well-architected product templates in the Getting Started Library or by following the steps in one of the getting started tutorials.

In the tutorial, you perform tasks as the catalog administrator and end user. As the catalog administrator, you create a portfolio and then a product. As the end user, you verify that you can access the end user console and launch the product. The product is one of the following:

  • A cloud development environment that runs on Amazon Linux and is based on an AWS CloudFormation template that defines the AWS resources the product can use.

  • An open source environment that runs on a Terraform provisioning engine and is based on a tar.gz configuration file that defines the AWS resources the product can use.


Before you begin, make sure that you complete the action items in Setting Up AWS Service Catalog.
