Implement change controls for Automation - AWS Systems Manager

Implement change controls for Automation

By default, Automation allows you to use runbooks without date and time constraints. By integrating Automation with Change Calendar, you can implement change controls to all automations in your AWS account. With this setting, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) principals in your account can only run automations during the time periods allowed by your change calendar. To learn more about working with Change Calendar, see Working with Change Calendar.
