AWS announces the general availability of AWS CloudFormation Hooks, a feature that allows customers to invoke custom logic to automate actions or inspect resource configurations prior to a create, update or delete CloudFormation stack operation. Over 1 million customers use AWS CloudFormation every week to model, provision, and manage their cloud applications and infrastructure in a safe, predictable, and repeatable way. With AWS CloudFormation Hooks, customers can now validate resource properties and send a warning, or prevent the provisioning operation, for non-compliant resources to reduce security and compliance risk, lower operational overhead, and optimize cost.
