Detailed Description

This handler uses the AWS REST API to retrieve the status of a particular EC2 instance. The instance you are inquiring about is identified by its instance ID. For more information see the AWS Amazon Virtual Private Cloud User Guide online.

The Dry Run parameter validates user permissions and inputs. If it is set to true, an error will always be thrown by the handler before completing the handler action. Error response will be 'DryRunOperation' if the account has proper permissions and inputs; 'UnauthorizedOperation' if the account does not have proper permissions.
