AWS Service Catalog now supports referencing Service Catalog provisioned product outputs in new provisioned products or AWS CloudFormation stacks. Provisioned product outputs, such as a VPC identifier, can now be made available as inputs to dependent provisioned products and stacks. This saves time building applications that have dependencies on existing infrastructure, such as a VPC, S3 bucket, or RDS database.
With provisioned product referencing, you include a Service Catalog transform in your template. Each parameter your template references includes the name of the provisioned product and parameter. During provisioning, the Service Catalog transform retrieves the most recent output value from the referenced provisioned product. Multiple provisioned products and parameters can be referenced in your template.
Support for Service Catalog provisioned product referencing is now available via the AWS API, CLI, and Service Catalog console in all AWS commercial Regions. To learn more, see the documentation on Service Catalog provisioned product referencing.
