Review Tab

When you initially view a workload, the Review tab is the first information displayed. This tab provides the overall status of your workload followed by status per pillar.

If your review is not complete, a banner appears at the top to remind you to start or continue your workload review.

The Review overview section shows the current overall status of the review and any Review notes that you have entered. Choose Edit to update the status or notes.

Choose Save milestone to capture the current state of the workload review. Milestones are immutable and cannot be changed after they are saved.

Choose Generate report to create a workload report. This report contains the responses to the workload review questions, your notes, and the current number of high and medium risks identified in the workload.

The Pillars section shows the status and notes for each of the five pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework. Choose the pillar name to display details about that pillar.

Pillar Details Page

The Pillar overview section shows the status of the questions associated with the pillar, your notes, and the overall status. Choose Edit to edit your pillar notes.

The Questions section shows your responses to the pillar questions.

You can filter which questions are displayed by either:
