Step 3: Review the Improvement Plan

Based on the best practices selected, AWS WA Tool identifies areas of high and medium risk as measured against the AWS Well-Architected Framework Lens.

To review the improvement plan, choose AWS Well-Architected Framework from the Lenses section of the Overview page. Then choose Improvement plan.

For this particular example workload, three high risk items and one medium risk item were identified by the AWS Well-Architected Framework Lens.

The Improvement items section shows the recommended improvement items identified in the workload. The questions are ordered based on the pillar priority that is set, with any high risk items listed first followed by any medium risk items.

Expand Recommended improvement items to show the best practices for a question. Each recommended improvement action links to detailed expert guidance to help you eliminate, or at least mitigate, the risks identified.
