Quickly deploying templates with transforms

Amazon CloudFormation requires you to use a change set to create a template that includes transforms. Instead of independently creating and then initiating a change set, use the aws cloudformation deploy command. When you run this command, it creates a change set, initiates the change set, and then terminates. This command reduces the numbers of required steps when you create or update a stack that includes transforms.

The following command creates a new stack by using the my-template.json template.

PROMPT> aws cloudformation deploy \ --template /path_to_template/my-template.json \ --stack-name my-new-stack \ --parameter-overrides Key1=Value1 Key2=Value2 \
