Starting today, AWS Systems Manager Explorer provides a summary of AWS Trusted Advisor checks across your AWS accounts, to help you get better visibility into cost savings, improve performance and reliability, and close security gaps. Systems Manager Explorer is an operations dashboard that provides a view of your operations data across your AWS accounts and Regions, helping you see where you may need to investigate and remediate operational issues. Trusted Advisor offers checks and recommendations across five categories based on AWS best practices: cost optimization, security, fault tolerance, performance, and service limits.

With this new feature, you can now use Systems Manager Explorer to view aggregated Trusted Advisor checks across multiple accounts or your entire organization. Additionally, you can choose individual ‘Checks by Status’ in the Trusted Advisor widget to see a list of checks and filter the data, export the results to a comma-separated values (.csv) file, and publish an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) notification. You can also query the Explorer data directly with the AWS API to create your own customized reports.

Systems Manager Explorer is available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), and South America (São Paulo) AWS Regions.

This new feature is available to Business Support and Enterprise Support plan customers. To get started, select Explorer from the Systems Manager left navigation menu. To learn more, visit the documentation on AWS Systems Manager Explorer, or the AWS Systems Manager product page
