Getting started with an Amazon CloudFormation product

You can get started with Amazon Service Catalog by using one of the well-architected product templates in the Getting Started Library or by following the steps in the getting started tutorial.

In the tutorial, you perform tasks as the catalog administrator and end user. As the catalog administrator, you create a porfolio and then a product. As the end user, you verify that you can access the end user console and launch the product. The product is a cloud development environment that runs on Amazon Linux and is based on an Amazon CloudFormation template that defines the Amazon resources the product can use.


Before you begin, make sure that you complete the action items in Setting Up Amazon Service Catalog.
