The Order of Resource Creations on AWS CloudFormation

AWS CloudFormation resource creations order

In an AWS CloudFormation template, you define independent resources or resources that are implicitly dependent; in other words, referencing other resources. For instance, you can define an Amazon EC2 instance and a security group. Then, you might choose to attach the security group to the EC2 instance or not.
