ControlScope - AWS Backup


A framework consists of one or more controls. Each control has its own control scope. The control scope can include one or more resource types, a combination of a tag key and value, or a combination of one resource type and one resource ID. If no scope is specified, evaluations for the rule are triggered when any resource in your recording group changes in configuration.


To set a control scope that includes all of a particular resource, leave the ControlScope empty or do not pass it when calling CreateFramework.
