Config Rules

EC2 Desired Instance Type Check

A config rule that checks whether your EC2 instances are of the specified instance types.

This config rule supports Auto Remediation actions using SSM Automation. The following actions are supported:

  • Stop Instance: Non-compliant instances are stopped.
  • Terminate Instance: Non-compliant instances are terminated (Be careful when selecting this option to not accidentally terminate existing resources).

In addition to an action, a notification using an SNS Topic can be added to send a custom message when a non-compliant resource is detected. (Make sure to update the email address from the default email@example.com)
