How to Deploy and Manage AWS Workspaces via AWS Systems Manager/SMM?

0

Is there a way to deploy and manage AWS Workspaces through the AWS SMM?

We're trying to setup AWS Systems Manager to be a simplified "central hub" in managing AWS Workspaces without having to go through AWS Workspaces. So it has to be setup in a way that the admin can log in, go to AWS SMM, then deploy and manage AWS Workspaces from there in just a few clicks.

We've reached out to AWS tech support (Workspaces and SMM), with the following solutions: [1] https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/publicsector/automating-deployment-amazon-workspaces-active-directory-group/ [2] https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/desktop-and-application-streaming/manage-amazon-workspaces-lifecycle-automatically-with-users-in-active-directory/

But they require a lot of effort and also mastery of additional tools such as AWS Lambda, AWS SMM Maintenance Window, Directory Services, and CloudFormation.

AWS Systems Manager doesn't have specific integration with Amazon WorkSpaces, however you can perform functions on non-BYOL Amazon WorkSpaces through a Hybrid Activation. I want to be clear though, there will be some additional tools required no matter how you proceed forward with building a solution that meets your requirements. I suggest starting with Automating AWS Systems Manager activation for Amazon WorkSpaces and then getting a good understanding of how to automate basic activities with Run Command.
