AWS Config integrates with the AWS CloudFormation Registry

Posted on: Jun 24, 2020

You can now use AWS Config to manage the compliance of resources from the CloudFormation Registry. With the AWS CloudFormation Registry, you can automate the management of private or third-party application resources alongside AWS ones. With AWS Config, you can assess, audit, and evaluate the configurations of your application resources. 

Resource types from the CloudFormation Registry will be automatically tracked in AWS Config as Configuration Items, if you create, update, or delete these resources using AWS CloudFormation and if you have configured AWS Config to record all resource types. Whether they are third-party or private resources, you can now view configuration history for Registry resource types as well as write Config rules to verify configuration best practices.
