Automating AWS Well-Architected Framework

Automating AWS Well-Architect Framework for your environment

1. Now that we completed the integration between AWS and Conformity, it’s time to generate an AWS Well-Architected Framework 📊 📋 report from the Conformity dashboard. This helps you gain new visibility into your AWS environment as well as the capability to generate additional reports based of the checks and scans ran by the Conformity Bot. To view these checks, select Browse all Checks below the compliance summary:
