Today, AWS CloudFormation has expanded the availability of AWS CloudFormation Hooks to the Middle East (Dubai) and Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Regions. With this launch, customers can deploy Hooks in these newly supported AWS Regions to help keep resources secure and compliant.

AWS CloudFormation Hooks is a feature that allows customers to invoke custom logic to automate actions or inspect resource configurations prior to a create, update or delete CloudFormation stack operation. With AWS CloudFormation Hooks, customers can now validate resource properties and send a warning, or prevent the provisioning operation to help them keep resources secure and compliant.

To get started, you can explore sample hooks published to the CloudFormation Public Registry or author Hooks using the CloudFormation CLI and publish them to your CloudFormation Private Registry. The registry provides a central location where you can browse CloudFormation extensions, such as resources, modules, and hooks that are available for use in your account. We recommend exploring our sample Hooks to jumpstart your Hooks collection.
