Distributor package deployment

Distributor is a capability of Amazon Systems Manager. A Distributor package is a collection of installable software or assets that can be deployed as a single entity. With Quick Setup, you can deploy a Distributor package in an Amazon Web Services account and an Amazon Web Services Region or across an organization in Amazon Organizations. Currently, only the EC2Launch v2 agent, Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) utilities package and Amazon CloudWatch agent can be deployed with Quick Setup. For more information about Distributor, see Amazon Systems Manager Distributor.


The home Region for Quick Setup must already be specified before you complete the follow tasks. For information, see Configure the home Amazon Web Services Region.
