Use Amazon Config with CodeBuild sample

Amazon Config provides an inventory of your Amazon resources and a history of configuration changes to these resources. Amazon Config now supports Amazon CodeBuild as an Amazon resource, which means the service can track your CodeBuild projects. For more information about Amazon Config, see What is Amazon Config? in the Amazon Config Developer Guide.

You can see the following information about CodeBuild resources on the Resource Inventory page in the Amazon Config console:

  • A timeline of your CodeBuild configuration changes.

  • Configuration details for each CodeBuild project.

  • Relationships with other Amazon resources.

  • A list of changes to your CodeBuild projects.
