Join Brandon Rich for an in-depth discussion in this video Create and provision with CloudFormation, part of Amazon Web Services: Deploying and Provisioning.
- [Instructor] Let's run through an example…of actually creating a CloudFormation template…to run through and create some resources for us.…Now a good place to start…is with CloudFormation Template Anatomy,…which gives us a pretty good idea…of all the sections that we can use…in a CloudFormation template.…If you scroll down you'll see there's a section for JSON…and a section for YAML.…Both are valid and we're going to use YAML.…Now only one of these sections is required,…and that's Resources.…The section where we will actually describe…the resources that we want to create,…such as auto-scaling groups, EC2 instances,…or elastic load balancers.…
In this example we will also use the Description section…and the Parameters section,…so that we can specify input parameters for our users.…So with this in mind let's open up the text editor.…Here I am in Sublime Text 2,…but you can use any editor that you'd like.…I'm going to set the syntax to YAML,…so we'll see some nice colors.…This document needs to start with three dashes.…
