How do I organize my AWS resources?

Last updated: 2020-05-07

I want to organize my AWS resources so that I can manage them as a group.

Short Description

You can use resource groups to organize and manage your AWS resources that are in the same AWS Region. With resource groups, you can automate tasks, such as applying security patches and updates, on a group of AWS resources at the same time.


To create resource groups, do the following:

  1. Sign in to your AWS Management Console.
  2. On the navigation bar, choose Resource Groups.
  3. Choose a resource group from Saved Groups, or choose Create Group to create your own group.

You can also access resource groups by opening the AWS Systems Manager console and then choosing Resource Groups from the navigation pane.

You can add tags to most of your resources to help identify and sort your resources within your organization. You can add these tags when you create or edit your AWS resources. In addition, you can add tags to supported resources using Tag Editor.
