AWS Config Rules enables you to define guidelines for provisioning and configuring AWS resources and then continuously monitor the configuration of resources recorded by AWS Config. You receive notifications when resources do not comply with these guidelines and get access to a dashboard of rules. You can use the dashboard to track overall compliance status of your AWS account and to navigate specific resource configuration changes that led to noncompliance.

AWS Config Rules capability is now available in seven AWS regions: US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo), in addition to Asia Pacific (Sydney) and Asia Pacific (Singapore).

Get started with AWS Config Rules in the AWS Config console. Refer to the AWS Regions and Endpoints page for a full list of supported regions.
