Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling now allows you to view deleted Auto Scaling groups in the scaling history. Previously if you deleted an Auto Scaling group, you need to either maintain the records of scaling activities for deleted Auto Scaling groups or ask support team to get the records for the same. Now, you can specify one additional parameter in a describe call to get a description of the scaling history for deleted Auto Scaling groups. This makes it easier to keep a record of scaling activities after an application has been shut down. 

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling helps you maintain application availability and allows you to automatically add or remove EC2 instances according to conditions you define. You can use the fleet management features to maintain the health and availability of your fleet. You can also use the dynamic and predictive scaling features to add or remove EC2 instances. This feature is available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD.
