Overview

A config rule that checks whether your EC2 instances are of the specified instance types.

This config rule supports Auto Remediation actions using SSM Automation triggered with CloudWatch Events. The following actions are supported:

  • Stop Instance: Non-compliant instances are stopped.
  • Terminate Instance: Non-compliant instances are terminated (Be careful when selecting this option to not accidentally terminate existing resources).

In addition to an action, a notification using an SNS Topic can be added to send a custom message when a non-compliant resource is detected.
