Amazon WorkSpaces Application Manager
Administration Guide

Package an Application with Amazon WorkSpaces Application Manager Studio

Creating application packages requires an EC2 instance that is configured for packaging Amazon WAM applications.

You will be charged for the AWS resources that you use when packaging your application, such as the packaging instance, Amazon S3 storage, and bandwidth.


  • Create a VPC with a public subnet in a region that supports Amazon WAM.

  • Create a security group for this VPC that allows access to the instance over port 3389 (RDP) from your computer.

  • Create a key pair to use to access your packaging instance.

  • Create the AmazonWamAppPackaging IAM role. For more information, see Create the Application Packaging Role.

  • If you haven't done so already, select a subscription plan. For more information, see Select a Subscription Plan.
