Using AWS Config to Monitor CloudFormation Stack Resources
In this hands-on lab, we will use AWS Config to monitor resources within an AWS environment. We will use a CloudFormation template to create an AWS Config rule to monitor the EC2 instances in an environment. The rule will detect whether instances launched in the environment comply with the instance types specified as accepted within the Config rule.
