Amazon EC2 Systems Manager Automation adds stack creation and deletion, sleep, image copy, and tagging action-types.  

The Automation capability in Amazon EC2 Systems Manager simplifies common maintenance and deployment tasks, such as updating Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). You can now use five new action-types that expand the use cases for Automation. With these new action-types, you can create and delete a CloudFormation stack, insert a delay in your workflow, copy and encrypt AMIs, and tag AWS resources. These actions extend on the existing collection of actions, which can be used to orchestrate tasks such as instance launch, OS-level instance configuration and patching, Lambda function invocation, and AMI creation. 

Amazon EC2 Systems Manager is available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), EU (London), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), and South America (São Paulo) public AWS regions, and China (Beijing) Region operated by Sinnet.
