Control library - AWS Audit Manager

Control library

The control library is the central place from which you can manage the controls used in AWS Audit Manager frameworks. You can go to the control library at any time by choosing Control library in the left navigation pane in the Audit Manager console.

The control library contains a catalog of standard and custom controls.

  • Standard controls are predefined controls provided by AWS. You can view the configuration details of standard controls, but you can't edit or delete them. However, you can customize any standard control to create a new one that fits your unique requirements.

  • Custom controls are customized controls that you own and define. With a custom control, you can specify from which data sources you want to collect evidence. You can then add custom controls to a custom framework.

    To learn more about how to add a custom control to a custom framework, see Framework library. To learn more about how to create an assessment from an Audit Manager framework, see Assessments in AWS Audit Manager.

This section provides information about how you can create and manage a custom control in AWS Audit Manager.
