Amazon CloudFormation StackSets is updating the deployment experience for CREATE, UPDATE, DELETE, IMPORT TO STACKSET, and DRIFT stack set operations with a new status code SKIPPED_SUSPENDED_ACCOUNT for stack instances. to skip suspended Amazon Web Services accounts during deployments. With this launch, StackSets will skip target Amazon Web Services accounts that are suspended, and flag skippedthe corresponding stack instances as SKIPPED_SUSPENDED_ACCOUNT instead of FAILED. This feature will help customers target Amazon Web Services accounts, Amazon Organizations or Organizational Units (OUs) without worrying about the number of suspended accounts in the target sample. Additionally, this feature helps to improves. Customers suspend their Amazon Web Services accounts for reasons such as reducing usage of cloud resources for non-production environments during periods of low demand. This feature enhances deployment speed of stack set operations, and reduces the number of FAILED stack set operations.
Customers use StackSets for bootstrapping Amazon Web Services accounts, deploying cross-account applications, setting up disaster recovery with Amazon Backup, and scaling cloud infrastructure. Now, customers get granular status information on their stack instances with the new SKIPPED_SUSPENDED_ACCOUNT status code. This feature will help customers target Amazon Web Services accounts, Amazon Organizations or Organizational Units (OUs) without worrying about the number of suspended Amazon Web Services accounts in target group. Previously, suspended Amazon Web Services accounts would result in higher counts of FAILED stack instances that contribute towards the failure tolerance for stack set operations. Customers use failure tolerance as a threshold to ensure the resilience and reliability of their stack set deployments. Customers now do not have to worry about suspended Amazon Web Services accounts adding to failure tolerance.
This feature is available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. Visit CloudFormation user guide to see the list of stack instance status code for StackSets.
