Systems Manager Automation Walkthroughs

The following walkthroughs help you get started with Systems Manager Automation using a predefined Automation document.

Before you begin, you must configure Automation roles and permissions. For more information, see Setting Up Automation. For information about creating a custom Automation document, see Walkthrough: Create an Automation Document.


If you create an AMI from a running instance, there is a risk that credentials, sensitive data, or other confidential information from the instance may be recorded to the new image. Use caution when creating AMIs.
