AWS Systems Manager now supports free-text search of runbooks

Posted on: Oct 16, 2020

AWS Systems Manager now lets you easily search for runbooks and other Systems Manager documents, such as Run Command and Distributor packages, by specifying a part of the name as the search keyword. This feature enables easy discovery of runbooks when you have a large number of runbooks in your account or when you do not remember the exact name of a runbook.  

An AWS Systems Manager runbook or document defines the actions that Systems Manager performs on your managed instances. With this feature, you can find runbooks and other Systems Manager documents by providing a partial, case insensitive text as the keyword. The new search experience is enabled in several Systems Manager capabilities: Run Command, Automation, Distributor, and Documents. 

This feature is available in all AWS Regions where AWS Systems Manager is offered. For more information, see the Systems Manager product page.
