AWS::ARCZonalShift::ZonalAutoshiftConfiguration ControlCondition

A control condition is an alarm that you specify for a practice run. When you configure practice runs with zonal autoshift for a resource, you specify Amazon CloudWatch alarms, which you create in CloudWatch to use with the practice run. The alarms that you specify are an outcome alarm, to monitor application health during practice runs and, optionally, a blocking alarm, to block practice runs from starting or to interrupt a practice run in progress.

Control condition alarms do not apply for autoshifts.

For more information, see Considerations when you configure zonal autoshift in the Route 53 ARC Developer Guide.
