Identify, Search, and Prioritize your Assets with AWS Cloud Tags in Warden

As your cloud assets grow in size, it is vital to manage them with a systematic identification process - which is why a lot of organizations have an asset tagging strategy in place to keep important resources in check. Warden now lets users identify, search and filter with cloud tags so that you can manage your assets in Warden more efficiently. Read more below.

Tagging enables you to group sets of resources for a variety of purposes, such as access control, Cloud Financial Management, and automation (such as patching for select tagged instances). Tagging can also be used to create new resource constructs for visibility or control (such as grouping together resources that make up a micro-service, application, or workload). Tagging is fundamental to providing enterprise-level visibility and control. With this feature add-on, Warden enables you to tag your assets to prioritize, filter, and take action quickly within seconds.

What you can do with cloud tags in Warden

With the new Cloud Tags feature in Warden, you can:

  • Identify resources already tagged in AWS easily
  • Search for resources with specific tags
  • Filter your resource list based on relevant tags

 

Value add-on for existing users

Cloud Tags provide support for highly contextualized information around your assets so that you can quickly identify and prioritize them. On top of that, it allows you to remove noise and focus only on a particular group of assets as and when needed. For example, Cloud Tags can be used to only view assets owned by “owner:onboarding-team”, or assets deployed in “environment:production”, and many other use cases!
