View a CloudFormation stack in a Dependency Views map

The Discovery workflow discovers the stack and lists the stack resources. When the Discovery workflow finishes, you can view the CloudFormation stack in a Dependency Views map as a network of related resources.

Before you begin

Role required:
  • For their personal cloud resources, cloud_user users can manage some settings directly and must change other settings by making a request to the cloud_operator.
  • cloud_admin users have management access to all cloud resources

About this task

The system creates skeleton records for the resources are added and CMDB CI relationships to verify the correlation of the stack resources.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Amazon AWS Cloud > Managed Resources > Stacks and select a stack.
  2. Click the Dependency Views icon.

    The Dependency Views map appears in a separate window.
