Amazon Fraud Detector now supports AWS CloudFormation for creating and configuring Amazon Fraud Detector resources such as detectors and rules along with the rest of your AWS infrastructure. Amazon Fraud Detector is a fully managed service that makes it easy to identify potentially fraudulent online activities, such as the creation of fake accounts or online payment fraud.  

AWS CloudFormation provides a common language for you to model and provision AWS and third party application resources in your cloud environment. AWS CloudFormation allows you to use programming languages or a simple text file to model and provision, in an automated and secure manner, all the resources needed for your applications across all regions and accounts.  

Support for AWS CloudFormation makes it simple for customers to create and manage Amazon Fraud Detector resources without having to configure them manually through Amazon Fraud Detector. For example, customers can manage a detector version and all detection logic in a single CloudFormation stack so they can create Amazon Fraud Detector resources in a secure, efficient, and repeatable way.  

AWS CloudFormation support for Amazon Fraud Detector is available in all regions where Amazon Fraud Detector is available: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Singapore) and Asia Pacific (Sydney).
