Archiving findings - AWS Identity and Access Management

Archiving findings

When you get a finding for access to a resource that is intentional, such as an IAM role that is used by multiple users for approved workflows, you can archive the finding. When you archive a finding it is cleared from Active findings list, letting you focus on the findings you need to resolve. Archived findings aren't deleted. You can filter the Findings page to display your archived findings, and unarchive them at any time.

To archive findings from the Findings page

  1. Select the check box next to one or more findings to archive.

  2. Choose Archive.

    A confirmation is displayed at the top of the screen.

To archive findings from the Findings Details page.

  1. Choose the Finding ID for the finding to archive.

  2. Choose Archive.

    A confirmation is displayed at the top of the screen.

To unarchive findings, repeat the preceding steps, but choose Unarchive instead of Archive. When you unarchive a finding, the status is set to Active.
