Resource Group

CloudCreator supports a 'Resource Group' categorisation on all services. It can be used in the following ways:

  • As a general purpose categorisation to associate groups of resources together. Some CloudCreator reports group and/or filter resources by Resource Group. 
  • To leverage CloudCreator’s automatic “ancillary services mapping”. This minimises data entry and maximises the benefit of entering category values. For more detail, see Ancillary Service Mapping.

 

Resource groups are applied at the resource level. The way they are applied differs by service, as described in the table below.

 

Service

Description

NZ services

For New Zealand hosted services (excluding Azure Stack), each resource can be assigned a resource group value inside CloudCreator.

 

AWS (offshore)

AWS provides a 'tag' feature that lets you store your own 'attribute' information against each resource. This is the best place to store resource information.

 

Early each day, CloudCreator loads resource tags with the key 'group'.

 

Note: 

  • The test on the tag key is case sensitive.

  • If multiple tags are found for a resource, the first one is used.

  • The loaded group is visible in the appropriate CloudCreator reports.

  • The loaded group can be viewed but not edited in CloudCreator.

  • AWS tag policies can be used to enforce tagging standards, eg. require each resource to have a tag named 'group' with a value specified.  

Azure (offshore)

Azure Stack 

The public cloud services, Azure and Azure Stack, provide a resource-level field called “Resource Group”.

 

Currently CloudCreator only loads tags from Azure (offshore). A future release will also enable this ability for Azure Stack.

 
Early each day, CloudCreator retrieves the contents of the field 'Resource Group'.

 

Note: 

  • The loaded resource group is visible in the appropriate CloudCreator reports.
  • The loaded resource group can be viewed but not edited in CloudCreator.

  • In Azure, the use of resource groups is mandatory.
