Creating Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client resources with AWS CloudFormation - Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client

Creating Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client resources with AWS CloudFormation

Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client is integrated with AWS CloudFormation, a service that helps you model and set up your AWS resources. This way, you can spend less time creating and managing your resources and infrastructure. You create a template that describes all the AWS resources that you want (such as Environments), and AWS CloudFormation provisions and configures those resources for you.

When you use AWS CloudFormation, you can reuse your template to set up your WorkSpaces Thin Client resources consistently and repeatedly. Describe your resources once, and then provision the same resources repeatedly in multiple AWS accounts and Regions.

WorkSpaces Thin Client and AWS CloudFormation templates

To provision and configure resources for WorkSpaces Thin Client and related services, you must understand AWS CloudFormation templates. Templates are formatted text files in JSON or YAML format. These templates describe the resources that you want to provision in your AWS CloudFormation stacks. If you're unfamiliar with JSON or YAML formats, you can use AWS CloudFormation Designer to help you get started with AWS CloudFormation templates. For more information, see What is AWS CloudFormation Designer? in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.

WorkSpaces Thin Client supports creating Environments in AWS CloudFormation. For more information, including examples of JSON and YAML templates for Environments, see the Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client resource type reference in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.
