Amazon Location Service now has full support for managing resources via CloudFormation. AWS CloudFormation simplifies provisioning and management of resources on AWS. It allows you to track changes over time, apply updates in a controlled and automated manner, and include version controls so you can easily roll back changes if needed. Amazon Location now has CloudFormation support for API keys, enabling automated and streamlined management of these keys through CloudFormation templates, making it easier to provide secure access control. Additionally, developers can now modify Amazon Location resource properties through Cloudformation without having to delete the underlying data. This facilitates more efficient resource management, allows users to change the political view of Map resources, and manage tags on Amazon Location resources. Amazon Location has also introduced the ability to delete unused API Keys via CloudFormation, which optimizes testing and deployment processes. Lastly, Amazon Location now provides the option to delete active API Keys using an API call with a force-delete feature, applicable even to keys that have already been utilized.

Amazon Location Service is available in the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Stockholm), South America (São Paulo), and AWS GovCloud (US-West).
