Resource prefixes

To use a custom prefix for a resource name, specify the prefix when you deploy the stack.

Prefix for IAM policy name IAMPolicyPrefix ✔️ ✔️ ✔️

  1. You may see these fields on the Quick create stack page when you deploy the stack and on the Specify stack details page when you update the stack.
  2. You may use ParameterKey and ParameterValue to specify prefixes in AWS CLI option --parameters. Example: --parameters ParameterKey=IAMRolePrefix,ParameterValue=IAM-ROLE-PREFIX- ParameterKey=IAMPolicyPrefix,ParameterValue=IAM-policy-prefix-

Do not modify any prefixes when you update the stack. Updating the prefix for the Lambda function can cause your update to fail. Updating other prefixes will prevent automatic updates from occurring.
