Using CloudFormation Templates to Create Complex Environments in AWS
In this hands-on lab, the student will work on a scenario in which an existing CloudFormation template is the basis for a new environment. In this scenario, we adapt an existing template to meet our requirements. We compare the original
as-is template to the final
to-be template and review the steps taken to adapt the original template. The student can then use the
to-be template to create the desired resulting stack. This type of adaptation saves a lot of time but may not result in a perfect environment on the first try. The student will be able to troubleshoot the resulting environment to achieve the goal of the Learning Activity; the ability to browse to a functional web application.
