Creating frameworks using the AWS Backup console

After turning on resource tracking, create a framework using the following steps.

  1. Open the AWS Backup console at

  2. In the left navigation pane, choose Frameworks.

  3. Choose Create Framework.

  4. For Framework name, enter a unique name. The framework name must be between 1 and 256 characters, starting with a letter, and consisting of letters (a-z, A-Z), numbers (0-9), and underscores (_).

  5. (Optional) Enter a Framework description.

  6. In Controls, your active controls will be displayed. By default, all controls eligible for a resource are listed.

    To change which controls are active, click Edit controls.

    1. The first check box indicates if the control is turned on. To turn off a control, uncheck the box.

    2. Under Choose resources to evaluate, you can select how to choose resources, either by type, by tags, or by a single resource.

    The list of AWS Backup Audit Manager controls describes the customization options for each control.

  7. (Optional) Tag your framework by choosing Add new tag. You can use tags to search and filter your frameworks or track your costs.

  8. Choose Create framework.

AWS Backup Audit Manager might take several minutes to create the framework.

If the error AlreadyExists occurs, a framework with the same controls and parameters already exists. To successfully create a new framework, at least one control or parameter must be different from existing frameworks.
