To validate your application configuration data, you provide a schema or an Amazon Web Services Lambda function that runs against the configuration. The configuration deployment or update can only proceed when the configuration data is valid.

    • Type (string) –

      The type of configurations contained in the profile. AppConfig supports feature flags and freeform configurations. We recommend you create feature flag configurations to enable or disable new features and freeform configurations to distribute configurations to an application.
