Resource types you can search for with Resource Explorer

The following tables list the resource types that are supported for searching in Amazon Resource Explorer.

Notes
  • Some resource types are identified by Amazon resource name (ARN) strings that share a common format with another resource type. When this happens, Resource Explorer can report such resources as that other resource type. For list of resource types affected by this issue, see Resource types that appear as other types.

  • At this time, tags attached to Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) resources, such as roles or users, can't be used for searching.

Programmatically accessing the list of supported resource types

To access the list of supported resource types from code, you can invoke the ListSupportedResourceTypes operation from any Amazon SDK.

For example, you can run the list-supported-resource-types Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI) command, as shown in the following example.

$ aws resource-explorer-2 list-supported-resource-types { "ResourceTypes": [ { "ResourceType": "acm-pca:certificate-authority", "Service": "acm-pca" }, { "ResourceType": "airflow:environment", "Service": "airflow" }, { "ResourceType": "amplify:branches", "Service": "amplify" }, ... truncated for brevity ...

Resource types that appear as other types

Some resource types are identified by Amazon resource name (ARN) strings that share a common format with another resource type. When this happens, Resource Explorer can report such resources as that other resource type. This affects the resource types in the following table.
