AWS Config Rules allows you to create rules that continuously check the configuration of relevant AWS resources recorded by AWS Config, and notifies you when resources do not comply with these guidelines. Using the rules dashboard, you can track overall compliance status and troubleshoot specific resource configurations that do not comply.

Now, you can share and benefit from rules created by the AWS Community through a new repository available on GitHub. You can now create AWS Config rules though the following mechanisms:

  1. Use AWS Managed Rules authored and managed by AWS Config
  2. Develop custom rules using the AWS Lambda blueprints
  3. Create custom rules using the sample rules available in the new GitHub repository.
