AWS Cloud Map now allows you to view service instance details and edit custom service instance attributes in the AWS Console. This feature, which was previously available only through the AWS CLI, SDK, or API, provides better visibility into the composition of your services and simplifies updating the metadata associated with cloud resources registered in AWS Cloud Map.

AWS Cloud Map is a cloud resource discovery service. Using AWS Cloud Map, you can define custom names for your application resources, such as Amazon ECS tasks, Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon S3 buckets, Amazon DynamoDB tables, Amazon SQS queues, or any other cloud resource. Your application can then use the AWS SDK or authenticated API queries to discover the location and metadata of cloud resources associated with these custom names. AWS Cloud Map is a highly available, managed service with rapid change propagation.
