AWS Insights Mod
Create dashboards and reports for your AWS resources using Steampipe.
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 IAM users, groups, and policies?
Dashboards are available for 15+ services, including CloudTrail, EC2, IAM, RDS, S3, VPC, and more!
AWS 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.
Download and install Steampipe (https://steampipe.io/downloads). Or use Brew:
brew tap turbot/tapbrew install steampipe
Install the AWS plugin with Steampipe:
steampipe plugin install aws
git clone https://github.com/turbot/steampipe-mod-aws-insights.gitcd steampipe-mod-aws-insights
Before running any dashboards, it's recommended to generate your AWS credential report:
aws iam generate-credential-report
Start your dashboard server to get started:
By default, the dashboard interface will then be launched in a new browser window at https://localhost:9194. From here, you can view dashboards and reports.
This mod uses the credentials configured in the Steampipe AWS plugin.
No extra configuration is required.
