When you connect your AWS accounts with CloudFix, you need to run a CloudFormation (CF) template in your AWS account. This article explains what is in each of those templates and how to learn more about what those CF templates do.
You can connect your AWS account with CloudFix in two different modes:
- Resource Accounts
- Billing Accounts
