Learn more about integrations: Integrations Guide

Resource

Resources are entities created, updated or deleted in integration tools.
Asset and resource keywords are used interchangeably. Resmo collects a resource's configuration, not the data itself.
For example, an Amazon EC2 instance has a resource like this in Resmo:
{
accountId:"935339171232"
amiId:"ami-372gd78g23rc1"
availabilityZone:"eu-central-1a"
instanceId:"i-1b9f37t81aec3a631"
instanceType:"t2.nano"
name:"application-server"
networkInterfaces:[]
publicIp:null
region:"eu-central-1"
state:"running"
subnetId:"subnet-2310d721"
tags:{}
}
Each resource has an associated key and configuration data:
  • Key
    • ie. GitHub has repositories or users which you can access using github_repository and github_user keys in Resmo.
  • Configuration data - in JSON format
    • See the EC2 example above.

Resource Group

Resource groups are used to organize Resmo resources. They are used to view, filter, manage resources easily.
Common use-cases for resource groups:
  • development, staging and production environments
  • accounts
  • teams

Rule

Rules represent desired states for resources. They are used to evaluate resource's configuration data against specified settings. Resmo offers managed rules (predefined) and custom rules (customizable). Rule notifications can notify users as soon as a violation happen.
ie. Ensure IAM password policy prevents password reuse.

Pack

Packs are used to group rules. They offer ready-to-use templates for common best practices and compliance frameworks.
Learn more about conformance packs: Packs (Compliance and Security Best Practices)
