With Config Rules, you are charged based on the number of active rules in your account. Each time an AWS resource is compared with a rule, the result is recorded as an evaluation result. You can choose to evaluate rules when AWS resources change or at periodic intervals like hourly or daily. A rule is active if it has one or more evaluations in a month.

Config Rules costs: $2 per active rule per month

For every active rule, your account receives at no extra charge for that month: 20,000 evaluations.

Unused evaluations do not accumulate.

If you need more evaluations for your rules, additional evaluations will be charged at: $0.10 per thousand evaluations

Configuration snapshots and configuration history files are delivered to you in the Amazon S3 bucket that you choose, and configuration change notifications are delivered via Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS). Standard rates for Amazon S3 and Amazon SNS apply. Custom rules are authored using AWS Lambda. Standard rates for AWS Lambda apply.

Except as otherwise noted, our prices are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT, GST and applicable sales tax. To learn more, see the Pricing FAQs
