Update a Custom WorkSpaces Bundle

You can update an existing custom WorkSpaces bundle by modifying a WorkSpace based on the bundle, creating an image from the WorkSpace, and updating the bundle with the new image. You can launch new WorkSpaces using the updated bundle. To update existing WorkSpaces that are based on the bundle, rebuild the WorkSpace.
