List of AWS Config Managed Rules

AWS Config currently supports the following managed rules.

Considerations

Defaut Values for Managed Rules

The default values specified for managed rules are pre-populated only when using the AWS console. Default values are not supplied for the API, CLI, or SDK.

Directory Buckets Are Not Supported

Managed rules only support general purpose buckets when evaluating Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) resources. AWS Config doesn’t record configuration changes for directory buckets. For more information on general purpose buckets and directory buckets, see Buckets overview and Directory buckets in the Amazon S3 User Guide.

Managed Rules and Global IAM Resource Types

The global IAM resource types onboarded before February 2022 (AWS::IAM::Group, AWS::IAM::Policy, AWS::IAM::Role, and AWS::IAM::User) can only be recorded by AWS Config in AWS Regions where AWS Config was available before February 2022. These resource types cannot be recorded in Regions supported by AWS Config after February 2022. For a list of those Regions, see Recording AWS Resources | Global Resources.

If you record a global IAM resource type in at least one Region, periodic rules that report compliance on the global IAM resource type will run evaluations in all Regions where the periodic rule is added, even if you have not enabled the recording of the global IAM resource type in the Region where the periodic rule was added.

To avoid unnecessary evaluations, you should only deploy periodic rules that report compliance on a global IAM resource type to one of the supported Regions. For a list of which managed rules are supported in which Regions, see List of AWS Config Managed Rules by Region Availability.
