What is "Action" ?

An "Action" in Job Automation is a setting item that specifies the job operation excuted by the trigger.

When creating Jobs, select the Action which matches to intended operation from the following list and configure the items required for that Action.

Depending on the Action, you can operate multiple resources with a single job by entering the tag, configured at AWS resource, at the Action settings. At that time, please note that the maximum number of AWS resources that can be operated for each Action is set in the Cloud Automator.
