Parameter Store

Why to use Param Store?

AWS Systems Manager has an additional capability called Parameter Store that provides you with secure, hierarchical storage for configuration data management and secrets management. You can store data such as passwords, database strings, Amazon Machine Image (AMI) IDs, and license codes as parameter values.

In addition, Parameter Store includes the following:

  • Free, fully managed, centralized storage system for configuration data and secret management.
  • Data can be stored in plain text or also encrypted with AWS Key Management System (AWS KMS).
  • Parameter Store tracks all parameter changes through versioning, so if you need to roll back your deployment, you can also choose to use an earlier version of your configuration data.
