What is Amazon CloudFormation Designer?

Amazon CloudFormation Designer (Designer) is a graphic tool for creating, viewing, and modifying Amazon CloudFormation templates. With Designer, you can diagram your template resources using a drag-and-drop interface, and then edit their details using the integrated JSON and YAML editor. Whether you are a new or an experienced Amazon CloudFormation user, Amazon CloudFormation Designer can help you quickly see the interrelationship between a template's resources and easily modify templates.

Designer is part of the Amazon CloudFormation console. To use it, open Designer at https://console.amazonaws.cn/cloudformation/designer and sign in with your Amazon credentials.

For information about validating your templates, see Validating a template.
