Beginning today, you can use a new Amazon Route 53 Auto Naming API to update the health status of service instances manually. After you register a service instance with a new custom health check configuration, you can call the new API to mark the service instance healthy and start routing traffic to it. Alternatively, you can set the health status to "unhealthy," and Route 53 will stop routing traffic to this service instance.

Now you can integrate third-party health checking systems with Route 53 Auto Naming. Additionally, you have more control over traffic routing decisions to help manage new deployments. To learn more about the Amazon Route 53 Auto Naming UpdateInstanceCustomHealthStatus API, see our documentation and product page.
