Creates a new control panel. A control panel represents a group of routing controls that can be changed together in a single transaction. You can use a control panel to centrally view the operational status of applications across your organization, and trigger multi-app failovers in a single transaction, for example, to fail over an Availability Zone or Amazon Web Services Region.
