Customers can now programmatically access information about AWS Availability Zones and Local Zones in addition to information about AWS Regions, services, and endpoints. AWS customers can now easily access the full list of AWS Availability Zones, Local Zones and find out which services are available within the regions by querying AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store.  

Parameter Store is a feature in Systems Manager providing secure, centralized storage for your application configuration data. AWS services publish information about common artifacts such as AMI IDs and Regions as public parameters. You can look up the available public parameters and call them from your scripts and code. With this launch, you can now query for AWS Availability Zones and Local Zones. Public parameters can be accessed using the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), AWS Tools for Windows PowerShell, or any of the AWS SDKs. 

This data is available now and you can start using it today at no charge. Visit the AWS Documentation page now for example queries.
