Setting up Control-M for AWS EC2

This procedure describes how to deploy the AWS EC2 plug-in, create a connection profile, and define an AWS EC2 job in Control-M Web and Automation API.

NOTE: Integration plug-ins released by BMC require an Application Integrator installation at your site. However, these plug-ins are not editable and you cannot import them into Application Integrator. To deploy these integrations to your Control-M environment, you import them directly into Control-M using Control-M Automation API.

Before you Begin

Verify that Automation API is installed, as described in Automation API Installation.


  1. Create a temporary directory to save the downloaded files.

  2. Click and follow the instructions on the EPD site to download the AWS EC2 plug-in, or go directly to the Control-M for AWS EC2 download page.
