Setting up Systems Manager Inventory

Before you use Amazon Systems Manager Inventory to collect metadata about the applications, services, Amazon components and more running on your managed nodes, we recommend that you configure resource data sync to centralize the storage of your inventory data in a single Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket. We also recommend that you configure Amazon EventBridge monitoring of inventory events. These processes make it easier to view and manage inventory data and collection.
