Simplified retrieval methods

Amazon AppConfig offers several simplified methods for retrieving configuration data. If you use Amazon AppConfig feature flags or free form configuration data in an Amazon Lambda function, you can use the Amazon AppConfig Agent Lambda extension to retrieve configurations. If you have applications running on Amazon EC2 instances, you can use Amazon AppConfig Agent to retrieve configurations. Amazon AppConfig Agent also supports applications running on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) or Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) container images.

After you complete the initial set up, these methods of retrieving configuration data are simpler than directly calling Amazon AppConfig APIs. They automatically implement best practices and may lower your cost of using Amazon AppConfig as a result of fewer API calls to retrieve configurations.
