Scale down aws autoscale

We are planning to use octopus deploy for Iaac and code deployment in AWS cloud. However we want to use aws autoscaling concept also to scale up and scale down. I want to know if there is any automated mechanism to register and de-register target in octopus deploy in case of scaling up of scaling down a EC2 instance.

You have a few options.

With AWS, you can configure an AWS lambda to run when a machine is remove from an autoscaling group. The Lambda could call an API call in Octopus to delete the machine.

Or, you can configure your machine health checks in Octopus to automatically remove unhealthy machines.

I would take a hard look at the AWS Lambda function.
