How to programmatically figure out which services are being actively used by an AWS account

0

Outside of billing and calling each service Describe/List* method, is there a way to obtain a list of AWS services for which there is atleast one resource present in a given AWS account? (this is different from Active service).

Hi There

There are a few ways to to this:

  1. Use Tag Editor
  2. Use AWS Config
  3. Use a third party tool like aws-inventory
  4. Use AWS Resource Explorer although not all services are supported yet

I'd consider looking in to the recently announced AWS Resource Explorer (https://aws.amazon.com/resourceexplorer/)

Thank you for quick responses! I should have added that I have limitation of working within SecurityAudit policy permissions to be able to do this programmatically. That said, I wasn't aware of aws-inventory tool and AWS resource explorer, will try those and respond back to the thread if it indeed solves the problem.
