In just a few clicks, you can now quickly re-execute a previous command using AWS Systems Manager Run Command. Run Command provides safe, secure remote management of your compute nodes at-scale and with safety controls. You can now re-execute a previous command exactly as before by using the new rerun command feature, or first make a few edits by using the new copy-to-new command feature. Simply select the desired command from your command history and click either rerun or copy-to-new, in both cases saving valuable time and effort by automatically copying all of the parameters and controls from the selected command into the new command.

Run Command provides a simple way of automating common system administration activities such as executing scripted maintenance tasks on production servers, or installing software and patches across your environments. Through integration with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), you can apply granular permissions to control the actions users can perform and on which compute nodes. All actions taken with Run Command are recorded by AWS CloudTrail, allowing you to audit all changes.

Run Command is a feature of AWS Systems Manager, which is available in all public AWS regions and GovCloud (US).
