Getting started with Amazon Resource Groups

In Amazon, a resource is an entity that you can work with. Examples include an Amazon EC2 instance, an Amazon S3 bucket, or an Amazon Route 53 hosted zone. If you work with multiple resources, you might find it useful to manage them as a group rather than move from one Amazon service to another for each task.

This section shows you how to get started with Amazon Resource Groups. First, organize Amazon resources by tagging them in Tag Editor. Then build queries in Resource Groups that include the resource types you want in a group, and tags that you've applied to resources.

After you've created resource groups in Resource Groups, use Amazon Systems Manager tools such as Automation to simplify management tasks on your groups of resources.

For more information about getting started with Amazon Systems Manager features and tools, see the Amazon Systems Manager User Guide.
