Starting today, Amazon EC2 Launch Templates support Amazon Systems Manager parameters for Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). This simplifies automation and reduces misconfiguration likelihood by eliminating the need to create a new launch template version for every AMI update.
This capability is available today for EC2 instances launched via launch templates and single instance type Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling groups. This feature is now available in all Amazon Web Services Commercial Regions, including Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
