Systems Manager Automation enables you to run a sequence of workflows (e.g., AWS API calls, provisioning instances, creating buckets, and firing off Lambda functions) through the convenience of a single SSM Automation document. In this hands-on lab, we'll dive into a custom AWS SSM Automation document and see how it works. AWS Automation can help you automate mundane or repetitive tasks for maintenance or deployment of your hybrid infrastructure. Via a series of steps/actions defined in either JSON or YAML, SSM Automation offers useful plugins to carry out commands/API calls — thus opening up many possibilities for a hands-off approach to your hybrid infrastructure management.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
