Cloudanix has over 400 audit rules spread across 20+ AWS services. These rules are organized under their respective service. So, this means that IAM may have 40 rules, whereas SNS may have 7 and EC2 may have 56 rules.
You can pick the frequency and time of the day when you want to schedule these checks. We call them Run. A run is a task which executes these checks and updates the audit results in the Dashboard.
In addition, as a user you may want to manually execute a Run. May be you changed some configuration in your AWS account and do not want to wait until the scheduled Run starts. For an ad-hoc run, you can kick-start the Run.
Here is how you do it.
- From your Audit Dashboard, go to the individual service details page. E.g.
- You will see a Gear icon besides the Service name. In the example below, Cloudwatch Audit, you see an orange Gear icon. Click on it. You can then pick "Run Audit" option.
- This will schedule the Run right away. In few seconds your Dashboard should refresh with results.
