Updating CloudFormation Template Stacks

How to update the CloudFormation templates for an Arpio application stack

In the Arpio console: 

1. Navigate to Application > Settings gear > Wait for It's time for an upgrade! banner to load at the top. 

This checks the newest template version against your existing template to generate release notes.  If the release notes are not relevant for your workloads, you can ignore this update.

2. Click the UPDATE NOW button.  This enables you to copy the latest templates; clicking the button does not initiate any changes to your environment.
