AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store today introduces advanced parameters that provide three enhanced capabilities. Advanced parameters enable you to create more than 10,000 parameters, use larger parameter value size (up to 8 KB) and add policies to your parameter.  

The larger parameter value size enables you to store parameters with long values such as certificates with long key chains. Advanced parameters also enable you to configure policies such as expiration, expiration notification and no-change notification. Expiration policy provides the ability to specify an expiration date and time. Expiration notification policy helps you track parameters that will expire soon. No-change notification policy helps you track parameters that have not changed for a specified period of time. Advanced parameters are priced per parameter per month, and per API interaction. See the pricing page for details.  

AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store provides a centralized store to manage your configuration data and passwords. You can reference this information dynamically from your application or from other AWS services.  

This new feature is available in all commercial regions and AWS GovCloud (US). For more information, see our documentation. To learn more about AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store, visit our product page
