What are the resource groups in AWS?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi there, I just started using AWS and I am trying to acquaint myself with it. I came across resource groups, and it looked like a feature that I could use to make my work much easier. I’m assuming it lets you organise resources. Can someone please elaborate? Thank you.

The term "resource group" refers to a collection of AWS resources that are part of the same AWS Region. They have matching tags, as matched by the tag-based criteria specified in a search query. Resource Groups console or AWS CLI is where you can define these queries. The search query includes key/value combinations of resource types and tags.

A resource group represents, maintains, and optimizes separate sets of resources. You can even nest a resource group to represent complex multi-tier information. To simplify your job further, resource groups also allow you to perform bulk actions such as:

  1. Allowing or blocking network traffic through ports.
  2. Monitoring and collecting specific logs.
  3. Applying updates or security patches.
  4. Upgrading an application version.
