Schedule a Custom Patch Baseline in an AWS Systems Manager Maintenance Window
In this lab, you will create a custom patch baseline for your production EC2 instances to take all available patch updates. You will test the baseline manually, and then schedule it to run as an automated process in a weekly maintenance window.
Terms and conditions apply.
