Feature Alert! ControlMonkey rolls out Resource Finder!
ControlMonkey’s Resource Finder is a new tool that correlates between the customer’s AWS cloud environment and their Terraform code repositories. By combining those 2 data sources ControlMonkey creates a one-to-one mapping between each AWS resource and the corresponding Terraform resource that manages that AWS resource.
This is an important feature for achieving full cloud visibility and control by finding exactly where each resource is managed in the Terraform repository.
Also, by having this one-to-one mapping a customer can easily identify AWS resources that are unmanaged by Terraform to identify “holes” and gaps in the environment’s Terraform coverage.
This helps our customers in several ways:
- If a DevOps member just joined the team and we want to task them with configuring a specific resource, they can use the ControlMonkey platform to easily pinpoint where the code for that resource is located.
- The Resource Finder becomes the “knowledge base” for the customer. This knowledge hub is shared by all members of the DevOps team, so they all have an easy way to find the code location for all resources, removing bottlenecks and dependencies.
- If the resource is not managed by Infrastructure as Code, you are given an indication of that. You can then use ControlMonkey’s “IaC Import” feature to automatically generate code for it.
