Supported Resources


CloudWanderer finds resources from AWS based on boto3 resources. However, boto3 does not have definitions for all resources that exist in AWS (though it does of course have clients for all services). To increase resource coverage, CloudWanderer implements additional definitions. These definitions are much faster to write and test as they provide only the functionality required to query the resource rather than the much more featureful boto3 resources which expose additional actions.

You can find a full list of supported resources below.

Additional Resource Attributes

Some resources require additional API calls beyond the initial list or describe call to retrieve all their metadata. To allow us to retrieve that additional information and return it in our CloudWandererResource, we implement our own custom Resource Attribute definitions.

  • Roles
    • RoleInlinePolicyAttachments
    • RoleManagedPolicyAttachments
  • Vpcs
