AWS Config now supports Amazon container services



AWS Config now supports Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR), and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) in all AWS Regions. With this launch, you can now use AWS Config to monitor configuration data for container-based resources in your AWS account, such as monitoring configuration changes to EKS cluster settings and tracking compliance for cluster configurations. AWS Config provides a detailed view of the configuration of AWS resources in your AWS account, including how resources were configured, how they relate to one another, and how the configurations and relationships change over time. Get started by enabling AWS Config in your account by using the AWS Config console or the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI). Select the Amazon container resource types for which you want to track configuration changes, such as ECS::Cluster, ECS::Service, ECS::TaskDefinition, ECR::Repository, and EKS::Cluster. If you previously configured AWS Config to record all resource types, then Amazon ECS, Amazon ECR, and Amazon EKS resources will be automatically recorded in your account. For ECS::Service resource type, AWS Config will only record the resource type with the [new Amazon Resource Name (ARN) and resource ID format]( AWS Config support for Amazon container services is available to AWS Config customers in all commercial [AWS Regions and AWS GovCloud (US)](/about-aws/global-infrastructure/regional-product-services/).
