We’re happy to announce that Amazon CodeGuru Profiler has improved the process for configuring new applications to be set up for detecting performance issues. First-time setup for each new application will be faster, easier, more accurate and can be performed entirely within the console.

Amazon CodeGuru Profiler is a service for application performance recommendations. It helps you find methods that hurt application performance and gives you specific recommendations to fix or improve them to reduce CPU utilization, cut compute costs, and improve performance.  

The improvements to application onboarding remove many manual steps and enable resource-based authorization. These updates eliminate the need to configure AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions each time a new application is added for profiling, streamlining setup, and reducing the chance of configuration errors. All of the required permissions can be granted from the Amazon CodeGuru console and the person doing the configuration no longer needs to be authorized to use IAM. When custom permissions need to be granted to specific users or roles, these can still be set or adjusted manually.
