Today, Amazon CloudFormation StackSets launches event notifications via Amazon EventBridge. You can trigger event-driven actions after creating, updating, or deleting your CloudFormation stack sets. You can achieve this without developing or maintaining custom solutions that periodically poll for changes in your CloudFormation stack sets deployments via CloudFormation APIs. With this launch, you can build your event-driven applications across multiple Amazon Web Services accounts, Organizational Units (OUs), and Regions with Amazon CloudFormation StackSets and Amazon EventBridge.

Customers use Amazon CloudFormation StackSets to model, provision, and manage their cloud applications and infrastructure in a safe, predictable, and repeatable way across multiple Amazon Web Services accounts and Regions. Customers use EventBridge to create event-driven applications by routing events between their applications, third-party SaaS applications, and other Amazon Web Services services. You can now ingest event notifications, and trigger event-driven actions when deploying stack sets. For example, you can use stack set operation events to sequence your stack set deployment Region by Region. You can consume a stack set’s create and update operation events using a Lambda Function to trigger such regional deployment workflow. Furthermore, you can initiate post-provisioning operations for stack instances even before the stack set is completely deployed. For example, you can immediately setup Amazon CloudWatch for stack instances with successful deployment to collect, access, and analyze your stack instance data with visualization tools. We look forward to the cross-account and cross-region applications you will build using this feature.

This feature is available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. You can get started with a few clicks via the Amazon Web Services Management Console, Amazon Software Development Kits (SDK), and Amazon Command Line Interface (CLI) commands of Amazon EventBridge.
