Proactive Evaluation

For steps on how to run this rule in proactive mode, see Evaluating Your Resources with AWS Config Rules. For this rule to return COMPLIANT in proactive mode, the resource configuration schema for the StartResourceEvaluation API needs to include the following inputs, encoded as a string:

"ResourceConfiguration": ... { "MemorySize": Integer*, "Role": String*, "Runtime": String*, "Timeout": Integer* } ...

*For more information on valid values for these inputs, see MemorySize, Role, Runtime, and Timeout in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.

For more information on proactive evaluation, see Evaluation Mode.
