Amazon Systems Manager Automation now lets you define the actions to perform when an operator cancels the execution of a runbook. Using this feature, you can automatically roll back any changes or perform necessary cleanups when the execution of a runbook is canceled.

You can use Systems Manager Automation to author runbooks to perform common IT tasks, such as patching or restarting instances, at scale with rate controls. Now, when an operator initiates the cancellation of the runbook execution, you can control the flow of the runbook by either stopping the execution or branching to a different step of the runbook.

The Amazon Systems Manager Automation feature is available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region operated by NWCD.
