Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Service Description

AWS Resource Groups lets you organize AWS resources such as Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon Relational Database Service databases, and Amazon S3 buckets into groups using criteria that you define as tags. A resource group is a collection of resources that match the resource types specified in a query, and share one or more tags or portions of tags. You can create a group of resources based on their roles in your cloud infrastructure, lifecycle stages, regions, application layers, or virtually any criteria. Resource Groups enable you to automate management tasks, such as those in AWS Systems Manager Automation documents, on tag-related resources in AWS Systems Manager. Groups of tagged resources also let you quickly view a custom console in AWS Systems Manager that shows AWS Config compliance and other monitoring data about member resources.

To create a resource group, build a resource query, and specify tags that identify the criteria that members of the group have in common. Tags are key-value pairs.

For more information about Resource Groups, see the AWS Resource Groups User Guide.

AWS Resource Groups uses a REST-compliant API that you can use to perform the following types of operations.

  • Create, Read, Update, and Delete (CRUD) operations on resource groups and resource query entities

  • Applying, editing, and removing tags from resource groups

  • Resolving resource group member ARNs so they can be returned as search results

  • Getting data about resources that are members of a group

  • Searching AWS resources based on a resource query

Sending a Request Using ResourceGroups

var resourcegroups = new AWS.ResourceGroups();
resourcegroups.createGroup(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the ResourceGroups object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var resourcegroups = new AWS.ResourceGroups({apiVersion: '2017-11-27'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the resourcegroups service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  resourcegroups: '2017-11-27',
  // other service API versions
};

var resourcegroups = new AWS.ResourceGroups();

Creates a resource group with the specified name and description. You can optionally include a resource query, or a service configuration.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the createGroup operation

var params = {
  Name: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  Configuration: [
    {
      Type: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
      Parameters: [
        {
          Name: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
          Values: [
            'STRING_VALUE',
            /* more items */
          ]
        },

      ]
    },
    /* more items */
  ],
  Description: 'STRING_VALUE',

    Query: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
    Type: TAG_FILTERS_1_0 | CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0 /* required */
  },
  Tags: {
    '<TagKey>': 'STRING_VALUE',
    /* '<TagKey>': ... */
  }
};
resourcegroups.createGroup(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • Name — (String)

      The name of the group, which is the identifier of the group in other operations. You can't change the name of a resource group after you create it. A resource group name can consist of letters, numbers, hyphens, periods, and underscores. The name cannot start with AWS or aws; these are reserved. A resource group name must be unique within each AWS Region in your AWS account.

    • Description — (String)

      The description of the resource group. Descriptions can consist of letters, numbers, hyphens, underscores, periods, and spaces.

    • ResourceQuery — (map)

      The resource query that determines which AWS resources are members of this group.

      Note: You can specify either a ResourceQuery or a Configuration, but not both.
      • Typerequired — (String)

        The type of the query. You can use the following values:

        • CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0: Specifies that the Query contains an ARN for a CloudFormation stack.

        • TAG_FILTERS_1_0: Specifies that the Query parameter contains a JSON string that represents a collection of simple tag filters for resource types and tags. The JSON string uses a syntax similar to the GetResources operation, but uses only the ResourceTypeFilters and TagFilters fields. If you specify more than one tag key, only resources that match all tag keys, and at least one value of each specified tag key, are returned in your query. If you specify more than one value for a tag key, a resource matches the filter if it has a tag key value that matches any of the specified values.

          For example, consider the following sample query for resources that have two tags, Stage and Version, with two values each:

          [{"Stage":["Test","Deploy"]},{"Version":["1","2"]}]

          The results of this query could include the following.

          • An EC2 instance that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Deploy"}, and {"Version":"2"}

          • An S3 bucket that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Test"}, and {"Version":"1"}

          The query would not include the following items in the results, however.

          • An EC2 instance that has only the following tag: {"Stage":"Deploy"}.

            The instance does not have all of the tag keys specified in the filter, so it is excluded from the results.

          • An RDS database that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Archived"} and {"Version":"4"}

            The database has all of the tag keys, but none of those keys has an associated value that matches at least one of the specified values in the filter.

        Possible values include:
        • "TAG_FILTERS_1_0"
        • "CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0"
      • Queryrequired — (String)

        The query that defines a group or a search.

    • Tags — (map<String>)

      The tags to add to the group. A tag is key-value pair string.

    • Configuration — (Array<map>)

      Note: You can specify either a Configuration or a ResourceQuery in a group, but not both.
      • Typerequired — (String)

        Specifies the type of group configuration item. Each item must have a unique value for type.

Retrieves the resource query associated with the specified resource group.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the getGroupQuery operation

var params = {
  Group: 'STRING_VALUE',
  GroupName: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
resourcegroups.getGroupQuery(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • GroupName — (String)

      Don't use this parameter. Use Group instead.

    • Group — (String)

      The name or the ARN of the resource group to query.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • GroupQuery — (map)

        The resource query associated with the specified group.

        • GroupNamerequired — (String)

          The name of the resource group that is associated with the specified resource query.

        • ResourceQueryrequired — (map)

          The resource query that determines which AWS resources are members of the associated resource group.

          • Typerequired — (String)

            The type of the query. You can use the following values:

            • CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0: Specifies that the Query contains an ARN for a CloudFormation stack.

            • TAG_FILTERS_1_0: Specifies that the Query parameter contains a JSON string that represents a collection of simple tag filters for resource types and tags. The JSON string uses a syntax similar to the GetResources operation, but uses only the ResourceTypeFilters and TagFilters fields. If you specify more than one tag key, only resources that match all tag keys, and at least one value of each specified tag key, are returned in your query. If you specify more than one value for a tag key, a resource matches the filter if it has a tag key value that matches any of the specified values.

              For example, consider the following sample query for resources that have two tags, Stage and Version, with two values each:

              [{"Stage":["Test","Deploy"]},{"Version":["1","2"]}]

              The results of this query could include the following.

              • An EC2 instance that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Deploy"}, and {"Version":"2"}

              • An S3 bucket that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Test"}, and {"Version":"1"}

              The query would not include the following items in the results, however.

              • An EC2 instance that has only the following tag: {"Stage":"Deploy"}.

                The instance does not have all of the tag keys specified in the filter, so it is excluded from the results.

              • An RDS database that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Archived"} and {"Version":"4"}

                The database has all of the tag keys, but none of those keys has an associated value that matches at least one of the specified values in the filter.

            Possible values include:
            • "TAG_FILTERS_1_0"
            • "CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0"
          • Queryrequired — (String)

listGroupResources(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Returns a list of ARNs of the resources that are members of a specified resource group.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the listGroupResources operation

var params = {
  Filters: [
    {
      Name: resource-type, /* required */
      Values: [ /* required */
        'STRING_VALUE',
        /* more items */
      ]
    },
    /* more items */
  ],
  Group: 'STRING_VALUE',
  GroupName: 'STRING_VALUE',
  MaxResults: 'NUMBER_VALUE',
  NextToken: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
resourcegroups.listGroupResources(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • GroupName — (String)

      Don't use this parameter. Use Group instead.

    • Group — (String)

      The name or the ARN of the resource group

    • Filters — (Array<map>)

      Filters, formatted as ResourceFilter objects, that you want to apply to a ListGroupResources operation. Filters the results to include only those of the specified resource types.

      • resource-type - Filter resources by their type. Specify up to five resource types in the format AWS::ServiceCode::ResourceType. For example, AWS::EC2::Instance, or AWS::S3::Bucket.

      When you specify a resource-type filter for ListGroupResources, AWS Resource Groups validates your filter resource types against the types that are defined in the query associated with the group. For example, if a group contains only S3 buckets because its query specifies only that resource type, but your resource-type filter includes EC2 instances, AWS Resource Groups does not filter for EC2 instances. In this case, a ListGroupResources request returns a BadRequestException error with a message similar to the following:

      The resource types specified as filters in the request are not valid.

      The error includes a list of resource types that failed the validation because they are not part of the query associated with the group. This validation doesn't occur when the group query specifies AWS::AllSupported, because a group based on such a query can contain any of the allowed resource types for the query type (tag-based or AWS CloudFormation stack-based queries).

      • Namerequired — (String)

        The name of the filter. Filter names are case-sensitive.

        Possible values include:
        • "resource-type"
      • Valuesrequired — (Array<String>)

        One or more filter values. Allowed filter values vary by resource filter name, and are case-sensitive.

    • MaxResults — (Integer)

      The total number of results that you want included on each page of the response. If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to a value that is specific to the operation. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the NextToken response element is present and has a value (is not null). Include that value as the NextToken request parameter in the next call to the operation to get the next part of the results. Note that the service might return fewer results than the maximum even when there are more results available. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.

    • NextToken — (String)

      The parameter for receiving additional results if you receive a NextToken response in a previous request. A NextToken response indicates that more output is available. Set this parameter to the value provided by a previous call's NextToken response to indicate where the output should continue from.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • ResourceIdentifiers — (Array<map>)

        The ARNs and resource types of resources that are members of the group that you specified.

        • ResourceArn — (String)

          The ARN of a resource.

        • ResourceType — (String)

          The resource type of a resource, such as AWS::EC2::Instance.

      • NextToken — (String)

        If present, indicates that more output is available than is included in the current response. Use this value in the NextToken request parameter in a subsequent call to the operation to get the next part of the output. You should repeat this until the NextToken response element comes back as null.

      • QueryErrors — (Array<map>)

        A list of QueryError objects. Each error is an object that contains ErrorCode and Message structures. Possible values for ErrorCode are CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_INACTIVE and CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_NOT_EXISTING.

        • ErrorCode — (String)

          Possible values are CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_INACTIVE and CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_NOT_EXISTING.

          Possible values include:

Examples:

Calling the searchResources operation

var params = {
  ResourceQuery: { /* required */
    Query: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
    Type: TAG_FILTERS_1_0 | CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0 /* required */
  },
  MaxResults: 'NUMBER_VALUE',
  NextToken: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
resourcegroups.searchResources(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • ResourceQuery — (map)

      The search query, using the same formats that are supported for resource group definition. For more information, see CreateGroup.

      • Typerequired — (String)

        The type of the query. You can use the following values:

        • CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0: Specifies that the Query contains an ARN for a CloudFormation stack.

If you specify more than one value for a tag key, a resource matches the filter if it has a tag key value that matches any of the specified values.

          For example, consider the following sample query for resources that have two tags, Stage and Version, with two values each:

          [{"Stage":["Test","Deploy"]},{"Version":["1","2"]}]

          The results of this query could include the following.

          • An EC2 instance that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Deploy"}, and {"Version":"2"}

          • An S3 bucket that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Test"}, and {"Version":"1"}

          The query would not include the following items in the results, however.

          • An EC2 instance that has only the following tag: {"Stage":"Deploy"}.

            The instance does not have all of the tag keys specified in the filter, so it is excluded from the results.

          • An RDS database that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Archived"} and {"Version":"4"}

            The database has all of the tag keys, but none of those keys has an associated value that matches at least one of the specified values in the filter.

        Possible values include:
        • "TAG_FILTERS_1_0"
        • "CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0"
      • Queryrequired — (String)

        The query that defines a group or a search.

    • MaxResults — (Integer)

      The total number of results that you want included on each page of the response. If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to a value that is specific to the operation. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the NextToken response element is present and has a value (is not null). Include that value as the NextToken request parameter in the next call to the operation to get the next part of the results. Note that the service might return fewer results than the maximum even when there are more results available. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.

    • NextToken — (String)

      The parameter for receiving additional results if you receive a NextToken response in a previous request. A NextToken response indicates that more output is available. Set this parameter to the value provided by a previous call's NextToken response to indicate where the output should continue from.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • ResourceIdentifiers — (Array<map>)

        The ARNs and resource types of resources that are members of the group that you specified.

        • ResourceArn — (String)

          The ARN of a resource.

        • ResourceType — (String)

          The resource type of a resource, such as AWS::EC2::Instance.

      • NextToken — (String)

        If present, indicates that more output is available than is included in the current response. Use this value in the NextToken request parameter in a subsequent call to the operation to get the next part of the output. You should repeat this until the NextToken response element comes back as null.

      • QueryErrors — (Array<map>)

        A list of QueryError objects. Each error is an object that contains ErrorCode and Message structures. Possible values for ErrorCode are CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_INACTIVE and CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_NOT_EXISTING.

        • ErrorCode — (String)

          Possible values are CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_INACTIVE and CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_NOT_EXISTING.

          Possible values include:
          • "CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_INACTIVE"
          • "CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_NOT_EXISTING"
        • Message — (String)

          A message that explains the ErrorCode value. Messages might state that the specified CloudFormation stack does not exist (or no longer exists). For CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_INACTIVE, the message typically states that the CloudFormation stack has a status that is not (or no longer) active, such as CREATE_FAILED.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

    • GroupName — (String)

      Don't use this parameter. Use Group instead.

    • Group — (String)

      The name or the ARN of the resource group to query.

    • ResourceQuery — (map)

      The resource query to determine which AWS resources are members of this resource group.

      • Typerequired — (String)

        The type of the query. You can use the following values:

        • CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0: Specifies that the Query contains an ARN for a CloudFormation stack.

        • TAG_FILTERS_1_0: Specifies that the Query parameter contains a JSON string that represents a collection of simple tag filters for resource types and tags. The JSON string uses a syntax similar to the GetResources operation, but uses only the ResourceTypeFilters and TagFilters fields. If you specify more than one tag key, only resources that match all tag keys, and at least one value of each specified tag key, are returned in your query. If you specify more than one value for a tag key, a resource matches the filter if it has a tag key value that matches any of the specified values.

          For example, consider the following sample query for resources that have two tags, Stage and Version, with two values each:

          [{"Stage":["Test","Deploy"]},{"Version":["1","2"]}]

          The results of this query could include the following.

          • An EC2 instance that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Deploy"}, and {"Version":"2"}

          • An S3 bucket that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Test"}, and {"Version":"1"}

          The query would not include the following items in the results, however.

          • An EC2 instance that has only the following tag: {"Stage":"Deploy"}.

            The instance does not have all of the tag keys specified in the filter, so it is excluded from the results.

          • An RDS database that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Archived"} and {"Version":"4"}

            The database has all of the tag keys, but none of those keys has an associated value that matches at least one of the specified values in the filter.

        Possible values include:
        • "TAG_FILTERS_1_0"
        • "CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0"
      • Queryrequired — (String)

        The query that defines a group or a search.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

        • GroupNamerequired — (String)

          The name of the resource group that is associated with the specified resource query.

        • ResourceQueryrequired — (map)

          The resource query that determines which AWS resources are members of the associated resource group.

          • Typerequired — (String)

            The type of the query. You can use the following values:

            • CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0: Specifies that the Query contains an ARN for a CloudFormation stack.

            • TAG_FILTERS_1_0: Specifies that the Query parameter contains a JSON string that represents a collection of simple tag filters for resource types and tags.
