Working with Distributor

You can use the AWS Systems Manager console, AWS CLI, or AWS Tools for PowerShell to add, manage, or deploy packages in Distributor. Before you add a package to Distributor:

  • Create and zip installable assets.

  • Create a JSON manifest file for the package.

    You can use the AWS Systems Manager console or a text or JSON editor to create the manifest file.

  • Upload the package's installable assets to an Amazon S3 bucket.

AWS-published packages are already packaged and ready for deployment. To deploy an AWS-published package to managed instances, see Install Packages.
