ControlScope - Amazon Backup
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


A framework consists of one or more controls. Each control has its own control scope. The control scope can include one or more resource types, a combination of a tag key and value, or a combination of one resource type and one resource ID.
