Introduction

With the parts of template anatomy that we've covered thus far (including Resources, Parameters, Refs, Functions, Pseudo Parameters, and Conditions), we're down to just three more major sections, beginning here in this post with Mappings. While we won't be adding any mappings to our current template, they are an important section of template anatomy to have in your tool belt for future template building. Up next: Transforms!

What Are We Doing?

In this video, we're covering mappings and the situations in which they can be useful in an AWS CloudFormation template, specifically when dealing with regions for Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). There are three key things to keep in mind with mappings that we also discuss for you to keep in mind for future template creation.
