Registers instances with a specified stack that were created outside of AWS OpsWorks.

We do not recommend using this action to register instances. The complete

registration operation has two primary steps, installing the AWS OpsWorks agent on the instance and registering the instance with the stack. RegisterInstance handles only the second step. You should instead use the AWS CLI register command, which performs the entire registration operation. For more information, see Registering an Instance with an AWS OpsWorks Stack (

Required Permissions: To use this action, an IAM user must have a Manage

permissions level for the stack or an attached policy that explicitly grants permissions. For more information on user permissions, see Managing User Permissions (
