Today, we are excited to announce the ability to roll back an EC2 Auto Scaling instance refresh. EC2 Auto Scaling’s instance refresh feature allows you to replace instances in an Auto Scaling group on a rolling basis. With today’s launch, you can use rollback to undo changes an instance refresh made when it fails.

When you enable automatic roll backs, you no longer need to manually monitor the instance refresh for success. Alternatively, you can manually start a roll back whenever you need to stop the refresh and revert to the configuration used before starting the refresh.

Instance refresh rollback is now available in all AWS regions including AWS GovCloud (US) regions. This feature is available through the AWS Management Console, the AWS SDKs, and the AWS Command Line Interface. CloudFormation support will be coming soon. 

To learn more, see the instance refresh rollback documentation.
