How does everyone here create golden amis with toggles ? such as if you want instance X to use AMI1 with datadog and instance Y to use AMI1 without datadog, you wouldn’t build a whole new AMI, you’d have some kind of flag or feature toggle, right?

Would love to here thoughts on this. I’m wondering if we can do something with SSM or tagging on instances to use as toggles.

with automation and cheap storage amis need to be less golden. it makes much more sense to build a more specific ami

To speed up builds I generally create baseline images (security, global dependency package installs etc.) Then use the latest baseline when creating an app specific build
