Amazon Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow (MWAA) now supports shell launch scripts for environments version 2.x and later.

Amazon MWAA is a managed service for Apache Airflow that lets you use the same familiar Apache Airflow platform as you do today to orchestrate your workflows and enjoy improved scalability, availability, and security without the operational burden of having to manage the underlying infrastructure. Amazon MWAA now adds the ability to customize the Apache Airflow environment by launching a customer-specified shell launch script at start-up to work better with existing integration, infrastructure, and compliance needs. Customers can use shell launch script to install custom runtimes, set environment variables, and update configuration files.

You can launch or upgrade an Apache Airflow environment with a shell launch script on Amazon MWAA with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console in all currently supported Amazon MWAA regions. To learn more about custom images visit the Amazon MWAA documentation.
