  3. In the Filter by resource groups, tags or inventory types section, choose the filter box. A list of predefined filters is displayed.

  4. Choose an attribute to filter on. For example, choose AWS:Application. If prompted, choose a secondary attribute to filter. For example, choose AWS:Application.Name.

  5. Choose a delimiter from the list. For example, choose Begin with. A text box is displayed in the filter.

  6. Enter a value in the text box. For example, enter Amazon (SSM Agent is named Amazon SSM Agent).
