evaluation against the last known state of your resources.
You can specify up to 25 Config rules per request.

rules before you can call the API again. If you chose to have AWS Config stream to
an Amazon SNS topic, you will receive a

You don't need to call the
StartConfigRulesEvaluation API to run an evaluation
for a new rule. When you create a new rule, AWS Config automatically evaluates your
resources against the rule.
StartConfigRulesEvaluation API is useful if you want to run on-demand
evaluations, such as the following example:
You have a custom rule that evaluates your IAM resources every 24 hours.
You update your Lambda function to add additional conditions to your rule.
Instead of waiting for the next periodic evaluation, you call the
AWS Config invokes your Lambda function and evaluates your IAM resources.
Your custom rule will still run periodic evaluations every 24 hours.
For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to StartConfigRulesEvaluationAsync.
