Logging in to the Amazon Web Services Management Console

The Amazon CloudFormation console allows you to create, monitor, update, and delete your Amazon CloudFormation stacks with a web-based interface. It's part of the Amazon Web Services Management Console.

You can access the Amazon CloudFormation console in a number of ways:

  • Open the Amazon CloudFormation console directly with the URL https://console.amazonaws.cn/cloudformation/. If you aren't logged in to the Amazon Web Services Management Console yet, you need to log in before using the Amazon CloudFormation console.

  • If you are logged into and using the Amazon Web Services Management Console, you can access the Amazon CloudFormation console from the home page by:

    • Selecting CloudFormation from under Management and Governance.

    • Searching for CloudFormation using the search bar.

    • Selecting CloudFormation from Recently visited services, if you've used CloudFormation recently.

If you don't have any Amazon CloudFormation stacks running, you are presented with the option to Create a stack. Otherwise, you see a list of your currently running stacks.
