Cleanup How-To Guides
📄️ Clean Up Expired Resources
A resource can be tagged with an expiration tag that instructs Resoto to clean it up after it has reached a certain age. This can serve as a safety net for when a CI job fails or the IaC tool aborts halfway through its run, or even as the primary means of managing resource lifecycles.
📄️ Clean Up Untagged Resources
Resource tags are an essential tool in finding and tracking an organization's cloud resources, but tags are only useful if they are applied consistently.
📄️ Clean Up AWS CloudWatch Alarms
When deleting EC2 instances, CloudWatch alarms are sometimes left behind.
📄️ Clean Up AWS EBS Volumes
When EC2 instances are removed, their storage volumes are sometimes left behind. Resoto can find and delete these unused storage volumes.
📄️ Clean Up AWS IAM Access Keys
IAM access keys are long-term AWS credentials, and it is best practice to remove keys that are no longer in use. Removing unused keys enhances the security and reduces your exposure to risk.
📄️ Clean Up AWS Load Balancers
When compute instances are removed, their load balancers are sometimes left behind.
📄️ Clean Up AWS VPC Resources
When deleting AWS VPCs, dependent network resources are sometimes left behind.
