Module documentation for 1.4.3

Amazon OpsWorks SDK




AWS OpsWorks

Welcome to the /AWS OpsWorks API Reference/. This guide provides descriptions, syntax, and usage examples about AWS OpsWorks actions and data types, including common parameters and error codes.

AWS OpsWorks is an application management service that provides an integrated experience for overseeing the complete application lifecycle. For information about this product, go to the < AWS OpsWorks> details page.

SDKs and CLI

The most common way to use the AWS OpsWorks API is by using the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) or by using one of the AWS SDKs to implement applications in your preferred language. For more information, see:


AWS OpsWorks supports only one endpoint, (HTTPS), so you must connect to that endpoint. You can then use the API to direct AWS OpsWorks to create stacks in any AWS Region.

Chef Versions

When you call < CreateStack>, < CloneStack>, or < UpdateStack> we recommend you use the @ ConfigurationManager @ parameter to specify the Chef version. The recommended value for Linux stacks is currently 12 (the default is 11.4). Windows stacks use Chef 12.2. For more information, see < Chef Versions>.

You can specify Chef 12, 11.10, or 11.4 for your Linux stack. We recommend migrating your existing Linux stacks to Chef 12 as soon as possible.

Documentation is available via Hackage and the AWS API Reference.

The types from this library are intended to be used with amazonka, which provides mechanisms for specifying AuthN/AuthZ information and sending requests.

Use of lenses is required for constructing and manipulating types. This is due to the amount of nesting of AWS types and transparency regarding de/serialisation into more palatable Haskell values. The provided lenses should be compatible with any of the major lens libraries lens or lens-family-core.


For any problems, comments, or feedback please create an issue here on GitHub.

Note: this library is an auto-generated Haskell package. Please see amazonka-gen for more information.
