Using PowerShell To List Resources In AWS Config
By using AWS Tools for PowerShell, you can easily create, manage, and deploy governance rules in your AWS environments. AWS Tools for PowerShell include multiple -s for PowerShell for working with the AWS Config through the AWS SDK. Read the documentation page for AWS Config with AWS Tools for PowerShell to see all the -s available.
One cmdlet that should be emphasized immediately is the Get-CFGAggregateComplianceByConfigRuleList command. With this -, you can quickly enumerate an existing list of compliant and non-compliant rules. This is an easy, programmatic way to list existing configurations within your environment.
This cmdlet includes nine additional flags:
Note that the ConfigurationAggregatorName flag is required. The other 8 are optional. Like the rest of the AWS Tools for PowerShell -s, this tool also has access to common credential and regional flags as well.
Read the documentation page for this cmdlet for more information.
