AWS Trusted Advisor introduces new API to enable you to programmatically exclude resources from recommendations associated with Trusted Advisor best practice checks. On Nov 17 2023, Trusted Advisor announced the launch of new APIs available to Business, Enterprise On-Ramp, or Enterprise Support customers. This launch adds the BatchUpdateRecommendationResourceExclusions API to this suite of APIs to allow users to exclude specific resources from specific checks programmatically. This capability is only available to via AWS Trusted Advisor APIs, and not available through AWS Support API (SAPI). 

Trusted Advisor continuously evaluates your AWS environment using best practice checks in the categories of cost optimization, performance, resilience, security, operational excellence, and service quotas, and provides recommendations to remediate any deviations from best practices. Based on your business and architectural context, you can now use this exclude capability within your operational tooling to increase the relevance of recommendations shown by AWS Trusted Advisor.

Trusted Advisor APIs are generally available in the US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Europe (Ireland) Regions.
