AWS CloudFormation Designer is a new visual tool that shows your CloudFormation templates as a diagram and lets you edit your templates. It provides a drag-and-drop interface for adding resources to templates and when you add or remove resources, CloudFormation Designer automatically modifies the underlying JSON for you. You can also use the integrated text editor to view or specify template details, such as resource property values and input parameters.
CloudFormation Designer can benefit you when you are modeling AWS resources with templates:
- Quickly understand what resources are in your templates and the relationships between the resources without needing to parse through JSON text files
- Discover what resources can be associated with each other through the drag-and-drop interface
- Spend more time designing your AWS infrastructure and less time manually coding your templates
