How to troubleshoot AWS Config remediations issues?


I'm trying to develop custom remediations using SSM documents. In some cases, when it goes wrong I can check it in the System Manager -> Automation console and see what's wrong with the code. But there are some situations where I cannot see anything, and I'm currently stuck in fixing this.

So basically I can only see this error: "Action execution failed" | screenshot_anonymized.png

Then when I look for it I can't find anything on the issue anywhere (System Manager, Cloudwatch, Config, etc...)

Does anyone know what this issue is? And/or a neat little trick to debug this?

The screenshot you shared doesn't look like Automation console, can you share some more details about the error you are seeing in the Automation console.
