Amazon CloudFormation uses context key-value pairs in cases where a resource's logical and physical IDs aren't enough to uniquely identify that resource. Each context key-value pair specifies a unique resource that contains the targeted resource.

Type: Array of PhysicalResourceIdContextKeyValuePair objects

Array Members: Maximum number of 5 items.

Required: No


Status of the actual configuration of the resource compared to its expected configuration. These will be present only for resources whose StackInstanceResourceDriftStatus is MODIFIED.
