CloudFormation Functions

Length: 00:14:17

Lesson Summary: In this video, you will learn about CloudFormation's concept of Intrinsic Functions and how they can be used to reference parts of a template that will not be created until runtime. Understanding this will allow you to create CloudFormation templates that have internal dependencies such as resources like AWS Lambda Functions or EC2 Instances that depend on the creation of IAM Roles before they can be created. By the end of this video, you should feel comfortable using several intrinsic functions in your own CloudFormation templates and understand how they allow you to access values like Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) that do not exist until the resource itself is created.
