ResourceCollection - Amazon DevOps Guru


A collection of AWS resources supported by DevOps Guru. The two types of AWS resource collections supported are AWS CloudFormation stacks and AWS resources that contain the same AWS tag. DevOps Guru can be configured to analyze the AWS resources that are defined in the stacks or that are tagged using the same tag key. You can specify up to 1000 AWS CloudFormation stacks.



An array of the names of AWS CloudFormation stacks. The stacks define AWS resources that DevOps Guru analyzes. You can specify up to 1000 AWS CloudFormation stacks.

The AWS tags that are used by resources in the resource collection.

Tags help you identify and organize your AWS resources. Many AWS services support tagging, so you can assign the same tag to resources from different services to indicate that the resources are related. For example, you can assign the same tag to an Amazon DynamoDB table resource that you assign to an AWS Lambda function. For more information about using tags, see the Tagging best practices whitepaper.

Each AWS tag has two parts.

  • A tag key (for example, CostCenter, Environment, Project, or Secret). Tag keys are case-sensitive.

  • An optional field known as a tag value (for example, 111122223333, Production, or a team name). Omitting the tag value is the same as using an empty string. Like tag keys, tag values are case-sensitive.

Together these are known as key-value pairs.


The string used for a key in a tag that you use to define your resource coverage must begin with the prefix Devops-guru-. The tag key might be DevOps-Guru-deployment-application or devops-guru-rds-application. When you create a key, the case of characters in the key can be whatever you choose. After you create a key, it is case-sensitive. For example, DevOps Guru works with a key named devops-guru-rds and a key named DevOps-Guru-RDS, and these act as two different keys. Possible key/value pairs in your application might be Devops-Guru-production-application/RDS or Devops-Guru-production-application/containers.
