Querying an inventory collection by using filters

After you collect inventory data, you can use the filter capabilities in Systems Manager to query a list of managed instances that meet certain filter criteria.

To query instances based on inventory filters

  1. Open the AWS Systems Manager console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/systems-manager/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Inventory.


    If the AWS Systems Manager home page opens first, choose the menu icon ( ) to open the navigation pane, and then choose Inventory in the navigation pane.

  3. In the Filter by resource groups, tags or inventory types section, choose the filter box. A list of predefined filters appears.

  4. Choose an attribute to filter on. For example, choose AWS:Application. If prompted, choose a secondary attribute to filter. For example, choose AWS:Application.Name.

  5. Choose a delimiter from the list. For example, choose Begin with. A text box appears in the filter.

  6. Type a value in the text box. For example, type Amazon (SSM Agent is named Amazon SSM Agent).

  7. Press Enter. The system returns a list of managed instances that include an application name that begins with the word Amazon.


You can combine multiple filters to refine your search.
