Systems Manager documents are an integral part of the Systems Manager service. They are at the heart of all the automation possible through SSM via JSON or YAML runbooks, which define steps to perform on a managed instance. In this lab, we'll create a document that carries out some tasks on a managed instance and will also use an SSM parameter, which offers scalable, hierarchal storage for configurations and secrets, allowing encryption.

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.
