Components

The provisioning of AWS resources with AWS CloudFormation involves several major components as follows:

  • Stack – an instantiated collection of related AWS resources, as defined by the stack's CloudFormation template (see above)

  • Change Set – a summary of proposed changes to AWS resources provisioned by the CloudFormation stack (see above)
