Systems Manager Pre-Defined Documents

To help you get started quickly, Systems Manager provides pre-defined documents. To view these documents in the AWS Systems Manager console, in the left navigation, choose Documents. After you choose a document, choose View details to view information about the document you selected.

To view these documents in the Amazon EC2 console, expand Systems Manager Shared Resources, and then choose Documents. After you choose a document, use the tabs in the lower pane to view information about the document you selected.

You can also use the AWS CLI and Tools for Windows PowerShell commands to view a list of documents and get descriptions about those documents.

To view information about documents using the AWS CLI, run the following commands:

aws ssm list-documents
aws ssm describe-document --name "document_name"

To view information about documents using the Tools for Windows PowerShell, run the following commands:

Get-SSMDocumentList
Get-SSMDocumentDescription -Name "document_name"
