When you deploy CloudFormation templates, they do not require Cloud Assembly cloud zones, but they do need cloud accounts with target AWS regions.

You only add additional AWS cloud accounts if the one you want is not currently listed when you configured the CloudFormation content source.


  1. Select Administration > Cloud Accounts, and click Add Cloud Account.
  2. Enter the 20-digit Access Key ID and corresponding Secret Access Key.
  3. To verify the credenitals, click Validate.
  4. Enter an account name.

    Provide a name that you can identify when you share templates with projects.

  5. In the Configuration section, select one or more regions in this account that you want to deploy templates to.
  6. Click Create.

What to do next

Return to the CloudFormation content source and add the new deployment target. See Add CloudFormation templates to the Service Broker catalog,
