Filter, group and share custom views of your cloud benchmarks with Turbot Pipes.

A benchmark like AWS Compliance can produce a lot of data. There are dozens of dashboards, with more than a thousand controls, and you might need to run those controls over many AWS accounts. You've always been able to export the data for analysis, but it would be nice to filter and group that data right in the dashboard, and now you can.

One way to simplify things: change the search path in order to scope the dashboard's queries to one or several connections.

But let's say you want to query all your connections and reason over the entire data set. The new Filter and Group widgets enable you to create — and share! — customized views of benchmark results.

Use Filter to constrain the view

Here's the CIS v300 benchmark from the AWS Compliance mod, filtered to show only alarms for Identity and Access Management.

You can also filter on a dimension like account_id or region.

Share your custom view

At any point, you can snapshot the dashboard and share the filtered view you've created. Your filters will be in effect for recipients of your link.

Note, though, that the snapshot preserves all the benchmark data. So people can add or remove their own filters to see things differently.

Use Group to reorganize the view

Whether or not you use a filter to contrain the view, you can regroup to organize how results are shown. The default hierarchy is Benchmark / Control / Result. But here's an alternate view that uses the account_id dimension as the primary group.

Now you can review results by account. Of course you can continue to adjust the filters in this per-account grouping. And here as well you can take a snapshot at any time to share a custom view with your team.
