Alibaba Cloud Insights Mod

Create dashboards and reports for your Alibaba Cloud resources using Steampipe.

Overview

Dashboards can help answer questions like:

  • How many resources do I have?
  • How old are my resources?
  • Are there any publicly accessible resources?
  • Is encryption enabled and what keys are used for encryption?
  • Is versioning enabled?
  • What are the relationships between closely connected resources like RAM users, groups, and policies?

Dashboards are available for ECS, KMS, RAM, OSS, and VPC services.

References

Alibaba Cloud provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs to authenticated customers on a metered pay-as-you-go basis.

Steampipe is an open source CLI to instantly query cloud APIs using SQL.

Steampipe Mods are collections of named queries, codified controls that can be used to test current configuration of your cloud resources against a desired configuration, and dashboards that organize and display key pieces of information.
