AWS Service Catalog, used by enterprises to organize and govern cloud resources on AWS, now enables your end users to perform self-service actions on your provisioned products, without needing to grant end users full access to AWS services.

Self-service actions are based on AWS Systems Manager automation documents, and you can discover allowed public actions in the Service Catalog Self-Service Action library. A library of pre-defined public actions is available- which include stop, start, and reboot for EC2 and RDS instances. You can also define custom, private actions. Your end users can invoke these actions without needing to contact your administrator.

You can define an IAM role for invocation and associate actions with Service Catalog products and product versions. After association they become available to your users, as actions, on their provisioned products.
