Using Amazon CloudFormation StackSets - Amazon Service Catalog
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Using Amazon CloudFormation StackSets


AutoTags are not currently supported with Amazon CloudFormation StackSets.

You can use Amazon CloudFormation StackSets to launch Amazon Service Catalog products across multiple Amazon Web Services Regions and accounts. You can specify the order in which products deploy sequentially within Amazon Web Services Regions. Across accounts, products are deployed in parallel. When launching, users can specify failure tolerance and the maximum number of accounts in which to deploy in parallel. For more information, see Working with Amazon CloudFormation StackSets.

Stack sets vs. stack instances

A stack set lets you create stacks in Amazon accounts across Amazon Regions by using a single Amazon CloudFormation template.

A stack instance refers to a stack in a target account within an Amazon Region and is associated with only one stack set.

For more information, see StackSets Concepts.

Stack set constraints

In Amazon Service Catalog, you can use stack set constraints to configure product deployment options.

Amazon Service Catalog supports stack set constraints on products in two Amazon GovCloud (US) Regions: Amazon GovCloud (US-West) and Amazon GovCloud (US-East).

For more information, see Amazon Service Catalog Stack Set Constraints.
