Explanation in Terraform Registry

Provides an Elastic Beanstalk Configuration Template, which are associated with a specific application and are used to deploy different versions of the application with the same configuration settings.

AWS::ElasticBeanstalk::ConfigurationTemplate (CloudFormation)

The ConfigurationTemplate in ElasticBeanstalk can be configured in CloudFormation with the resource name AWS::ElasticBeanstalk::ConfigurationTemplate. The following sections describe how to use the resource and its parameters.

Example Usage from GitHub

An example could not be found in GitHub.


Explanation in CloudFormation Registry

The AWS::ElasticBeanstalk::ConfigurationTemplate resource is an AWS Elastic Beanstalk resource type that specifies an Elastic Beanstalk configuration template, associated with a specific Elastic Beanstalk application. You define application configuration settings in a configuration template. You can then use the configuration template to deploy different versions of the application with the same configuration settings.

Note The Elastic Beanstalk console and documentation often refer to configuration templates as saved configurations. When you set configuration options in a saved configuration (configuration template), Elastic Beanstalk applies them with a particular precedence as part of applying options from multiple sources. For more information, see Configuration Options in the AWS Elastic Beanstalk Developer Guide.
