Typical Practice Workflow

By using CloudFormation, you can create a stack template that describes all the resources you want, and CloudFormation can quickly create and configure those resources. You can also easily manage the collection of resources as a single unit.

The typical workflow of CloudFormation is as follows:
  1. Prepare a stack template.
    • First, you need to prepare a stack template. CloudFormation will create and configure a related resource stack based on the template prepared.
    • You can check whether the sample template provided by the cloud meets the business needs in advance. If it meets the needs, you can use the sample template directly to create a related resource stack.
    • If the sample template does not meet the business needs, you can create a new template or modify an existing one. For more information about how to create a custom template, see the Stack Template topic. Furthermore, you can use the designer to fast create a custom template. For more information about the designer, see the Designer topic.
  2. Create a resource stack.
    • If the sample template meets the business needs, you can use the sample template directly to create a resource stack. For more information about how to create a resource stack by using a sample template, see the Sample Template topic.
    • You can also create a resource stack by using a custom template. For more information about how to create a resource stack by using a custom template, see the Stack Template topic. Furthermore, you can use the designer to fast create a resource stack. For more information about the designer, see the Designer topic.
  3. Manage the resource stack.
    • CloudFormation provides lifecycle management of the resource stack.
    • You can check the information of all resources in the resource stack.
    • When you delete a resource stack, you delete the resource stack and all of its resources.
    • For more information about the resource stack management, see the Resource Stack topic.
