AWS Config

Overview

AWS Config provides a detailed view of the configuration of AWS resources in your AWS account. This includes how the resources are related to one another and how they were configured in the past so that you can see how the configurations and relationships change over time.

Enable this integration to see all your AWS Config metrics in Datadog.
