            AWS cloudformation: How to run cfn-nag locally in Windows
            Asked 2021-Jul-15 at 10:53

            I have a cloud formation template where I have all the resources and details for the project.

            I have the cfn-lint setup locally and it is running perfectly fine. However when I push the code changes, build fails at deployment stage due to cfn-nag stating some simple changes which could be fixed.

            I'm using windows machine and I need a way to run this cfn-nag locally so that I could check this just like cfn-lint and fix them locally instead of waiting 40 minutes for build till it reaches deployment stage.

            I referred several posts online, found below two helpful


            What is the difference between cfn-nag and cfn-lint and why lint is not failing on what cfn-nag is complaining about?

            The above links have some instructions on Ruby and Brew but I'm using Nodejs, felt lost. Please help.



            Answered 2021-Jul-15 at 10:53

            CFN-Nag looks for patterns in AWS CloudFormation templates that may indicate insecure infrastructure,


            IAM rules that are too permissive (wildcards), Security group rules that are too permissive (wildcards), Access logs that aren’t enabled, Encryption that isn’t enabled,

            CFN-Lint scans the AWS CloudFormation template by processing a collection of Rules, where every rule handles a specific function check or validation of the template. It validates against AWS CloudFormation Resource specification.

            This collection of rules can be extended with custom rules using the --append-rules argument.

            Ex: Whitespaces, alignment(YAML), type checks, valid values for resource properties, and other best practices.

            Those two links you previded above have all the information needed, just not directly for a Nodejs developer using a Windows machine.

            Step1: Pull the docket image stelligent/cfn-nag

            Step2: Add the script to your package.json for cfn-nag




            How to import Resource ID into UserData in Cloudformation
            Asked 2021-May-14 at 22:12

            I have a cloudformation template with an efs filesystem and an instance launch configuration. I need to reference the efs filesystem id in the UserData script, as I want to mount the efs on launch. I've tried it with echo ${!Ref EFSFileSystem} like this:



            Answered 2021-May-14 at 22:12

            You have a !Sub on the string already, so instead of ${!Ref EFSFileSystem} you just need to do ${EFSFileSystem}. That will be replaced with the default output of the resource, in this case, the Id.



            CloudFormation Fn::Transform Operation: Lower -> syntax error
            Asked 2021-Jan-18 at 23:00

            I'm trying to create an AWS S3 Bucket with cloud formation.

            S3 bucket name needs to be lowercase but I want to use a paramenter to compound that name. This parameter comes uppercase.

            I founded a way.

            I read this.

            This is my code:



            Answered 2021-Jan-18 at 23:00

            Important point to note to get the syntax right is to use Json with Yaml when using multiple Intrinsic functions. Updated syntax below. For Environment value DEV, this creates a bucket of name content-input-dev

            This is a syntax error. One example how it should be for the Replace operation is given in the repository. Here is a template that I was able to deploy, it uses Transform inside FindInMap and creates an S3 bucket with a test-key:test-value tag:



            CloudFormation - Install and configure CloudWatch Agent to EC2 Instances
            Asked 2020-Jun-24 at 04:58

            I have a CloudFormation template that create ec2 instances using LaunchTemplate, but I want to add cloudwatch agent to the instances, but I can't figure what's wrong.

            I have 2 configSets, but the cfn-init get stuck in "02_download_app" > "Command run_app", this part I run a jar file from /.

            Here is the output from /var/log/cfn-init-cmd.log, I noticed that after the command run_app the jar get stucked 17:25, and some time later 17:42 I connect to the instance kill the jar and relaunch and it continues the script successfully, I think the error is some encoding problem, but I don't know where: in the jar? in log4j config file?, etc.



            Answered 2020-Jun-24 at 01:38

            I guess you are referring this sudo java -jar /tmp/app.jar &? I think you should kill it in your Init after your test finishes.

            One way to do this could be as follows:

            AWS CloudFormation Macros are not invoked while deleting Stacks. They are invoked only while creating/updating Stacks
            Asked 2020-Jan-19 at 17:11

            I have cloned this repo and deployed the Count stack successfully.



            Answered 2020-Jan-19 at 17:11

            Because Count is a macro, not a custom resource. A macro is a preprocessor for the Cloudformation template. It takes the template, changes it and outputs a new template. Cloudformation then carries on creating the stack using the updated template.

            When you delete the stack, it deletes all resources defined in the stack so there is no need to call the macro again.

            In contrast a custom resource is executed at deployment and is used to control resources that Cloudformation doesn't support or to implement other custom logic. The custom resource will be invoked when the stack is deleted to give it a chance to clear up the resources it created.
