Once the AWS account is connected to CloudFix and CloudFix's analysis and scan of the AWS account is complete, recommendations for savings in your environment will be displayed. These recommendations are called Finders in CloudFix and the article provides information about them.
Finders in CloudFix are completely free.
The information related to Finders can be found on your CloudFix Dashboard under
> Savings Pending Approval:
Finders can be viewed for all CloudFix accounts, irrespective of subscription status of the account. CloudFix can additionally act upon these recommendations and engage Fixers which would create a change template in AWS for you to approve. But, this feature is available only on subscription accounts.
The details of each of the Finder can be seen by clicking the icon. It will open the
Recommendation Details dialog for that Finder:
The dialog provides information for the update from gp2 to gp3 recommendation (i.e., the selected recommendation), where it displays the relevant parameters CloudFix has measured. You can click
Learn More to find more information related to this Finder.
In order to approve this recommendation, click the Approve Template icon, which will take you to the
Fixer Configuration page where it would list the templates that are pending approvals. A CloudFix subscription is required to access Fixers.
