Amazon service Using with Resource Groups

Amazon CloudFormation – Create resource groups in Amazon CloudFormation by using a stack template.

When you create an application in AppRegistry, that service automatically creates an resource group for that application. The application resource group is a collection of all of the resources in your application. The service also creates a Amazon CloudFormation stack-based resource group for every stack associated with the application.

For more information, see Using AppRegistry in the Amazon Service Catalog Administrator Guide.

Gather operational insights and take bulk actions on your applications that are based on resource groups. In the Amazon Systems Manager console, the Application Manager Custom applications page automatically imports and displays operations data for applications that are based on resource groups. You can use the information in Application Manager to help you determine which resources in an application are compliant and working correctly and which resources require action.

For more information, see Working with applications in Application Manager in the Amazon Systems Manager User Guide.
