AWS CDK Tokens represent resource attributes or values that are meant to be resolved during later stages of a CDK application's lifecycle. Tokens can be resolved in either the synthesis or deployment stage of your application. CDK tokens can serve as placeholders within your stack definitions in order to build your infrastructure without requiring the actual values of certain attributes. Dynamically resolved tokens improve the reusability of your stack definitions.
