We recently updated Customizations for AWS Control Tower, a reference implementation that makes it easier to build your own guardrails and integrations with the AWS Control Tower service. Customizations for AWS Control Tower v2.1 is for new or existing AWS Control Tower customers that want to use the managed service, but have additional requirements that are not yet supported by the service. AWS Partners can also use the framework to develop and package their own custom guardrails and integrations for AWS Control Tower.

Customizations for AWS Control Tower v2.1 gives customers the option to deploy AWS CloudFormation StackSets operations into all specified AWS Regions in parallel. This latest release also supports UTF-8 to improve compatibility with AWS CodeBuild and avoid build failure when file names have non-U.S. English characters. Other improvements include:
• Allow list of SSM Parameter Store keys for AWS CloudFormation parameter of CommaDelimitedList type
• Handle account names with overlapping string
• Handle SCP policy tag name with whitespace
