To set up DevOps Guru, perform the following tasks in the AWS Systems Manager Quick Setup console.

To set up DevOps Guru with Quick Setup
  1. Open the AWS Systems Manager console at

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Quick Setup.

  3. On the DevOps Guru card, choose Create.


    If you already have one or more configurations in your account, first choose the Library tab or the Create button in the Configurations section to view the cards.

  4. In the Configuration options section, choose the AWS resource types you want to analyze and your notification preferences.

    If you don't select the Analyze all AWS resources in all the accounts in my organization option, you can choose AWS resources to analyze later in the DevOps Guru console. DevOps Guru analyzes different AWS resource types (such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances), which are categorized into two pricing groups. You pay for the AWS resource hours analyzed, for each active resource. A resource is only active if it produces metrics, events, or log entries within an hour. The rate you're charged for a specific AWS resource type depends on the price group.

    If you select the Enable SNS notifications option, an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic is created in each AWS account in the organizational units (OUs) you target with your configuration. DevOps Guru uses the topic to notify you about important DevOps Guru events, such as the creation of a new insight. If you don't enable this option, you can add a topic later in the DevOps Guru console.

    If you select the Enable AWS Systems Manager OpsItems option, operational work items (OpsItems) will be created for related Amazon EventBridge events and Amazon CloudWatch alarms.

  5. In the Schedule section, choose how frequently you want Quick Setup to remediate changes made to resources that differ from your configuration. The Default option runs once. If you don't want Quick Setup to remediate changes made to resources that differ from your configuration, choose Disabled under Custom.

  6. In the Targets section, choose whether to allow DevOps Guru to analyze resources in some of your organizational units (OUs), or the account you're currently logged in to.

    If you choose Custom, continue to step 8.
