- Open up your text editor and create a new CloudFormation template. We're going to require a VPC ID and some subnet IDs as Parameters. Add them to your template like this:
AWSTemplateFormatVersion: '2010-09-09' Parameters: VPCID: Type: AWS::EC2::VPC::Id Description: VPC where load balancer and instance will launch SubnetIDs: Type: List<AWS::EC2::Subnet::Id> Description: Subnets where load balancer and instance will launch (pick at least 2)
