You can now use Amazon CloudFormation templates to create and manage Amazon Transfer Family resources for AS2 including servers, connectors, partner profiles, and certificates. Amazon CloudFormation makes it easy to configure the entire stack of AS2 resources required to initiate and test an end-to-end AS2 message exchange. Additionally, you can now access Amazon CloudWatch metrics for AS2, such as number of successful and failed AS2 messages, in the Amazon Transfer Family Management Console. These metrics enable you to more effectively monitor your AS2 activity using a centralized dashboard.

Customers across verticals such as healthcare and life sciences, retail, financial services, and insurance that rely on AS2 for exchanging business-critical data use Amazon Transfer Family’s highly available, scalable, and globally available AS2 endpoints to more cost effectively and securely exchange transactional data with their trading partners. Exchanged data is natively accessible in Amazon Web Services Cloud for processing, analysis, and machine learning, as well as for integrations with business applications running on Amazon Web Services Cloud.

Both of these AS2 enhancements are available in all regions where Amazon Transfer Family is available, including the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To quickly configure a stack of AS2 resources, read the documentation or deploy this sample template.
