AWS Config Now Supports Tagging of AWS Config Resources

Posted on: Mar 14, 2019

You can now assign tags to your AWS Config resources for cost allocation and access control. Tagging is available for AWS Config resources that describe AWS Config rules and multi-account, multi-region Aggregators with AWS Config. You can add, remove or list tags for your AWS Config resources using the available APIs.

AWS Config is a service that enables you to assess, audit, and evaluate the configurations of your AWS resources. Config continuously monitors and records your AWS resource configurations and allows you to automate the evaluation of recorded configurations against desired configurations. With Config, you can review changes in configurations and relationships between AWS resources, dive into detailed resource configuration histories, and determine your overall compliance against the configurations specified in your internal guidelines. This enables you to simplify compliance auditing, security analysis, change management, and operational troubleshooting.
