You can now record configuration changes to your Amazon Redshift clusters with AWS Config. The detailed configuration recorded by AWS Config includes changes made to Amazon Redshift clusters, cluster parameter groups, cluster security groups, cluster snapshots, cluster subnet groups, and event subscriptions. In addition, you can run two new managed Config Rules to check whether your Amazon Redshift clusters have the appropriate configuration and maintenance settings. These checks include verifying that your cluster database is encrypted, logging is enabled, snapshot data retention period is set appropriately, and much more. 

With these new capabilities, you can now dive deep into how your cluster was configured at any point in time. For example, you can use the configuration history to determine how your cluster’s security group changed over time. Visit the AWS Config Console or use the AWS SDKs or CLI to start recording configuration changes and verifying whether your Amazon Redshift clusters comply with the recommended settings.
