AWS Tags: offer reverse logic

Right now it is possible to exclude AWS resources based on specific tags. This is great! Would it be possible to offer the reverse logic as well: only include resources with a specific tag?

Re: AWS Tags: offer reverse logic

Hi Tom,

        We have to think through this as it may create some confusions in logic. Like what if both include and exclude is given the same tag (by mistake) is one such scenario. We will implement this when we a definitive workflow.

You are most welcome to suggest us as well.

Re: Re: AWS Tags: offer reverse logic

Hi, is there any update on this?

As we have several customers in our MSP account, we do need to setup for the desired monitors...
We do managed services, and we are interested to monitor only the managed servers... so if the customer adds a new server which is not managed by us, it will not appear in monitoring.

Please think we have more than 40 customers actually in our account... tons of monitors, so we need so badly in order to use the AWS connector. If not it is not feasible.

As a suggestion, you can offer a selection of 2 Options:

Please select the procedure in order to add your resources
Add monitors with tag XXXXX and value XXXXX
Ignore/exclude monitors with tag XXXX and value XXXXX

(let free the choose for the tag and value name)

Hi Eduardo,

We have taken up this feature request and option to discover AWS Resources based on the Tag specified will be provided in our upcoming milestone. It will be available by first week of next month.

We will keep you updated.

Thanks.

Thanks for the update!

I had also another idea, you can also (additionally to that), only create an EC2 monitor if there is already an agent monitor that match (this as something optional). That would be awesome!

Looking forward for your feedback!
