Change Requests (CRs) in CloudFix are created after any of the templates are approved by customers. These templates are the ones that CloudFix recommends to save costs in your environment.
Below are some points on how CloudFix handles the CRs via Cron tasks:
- At the xx:50 of the hour, CloudFix will check if new templates have been approved. This is done if you don't have the Centralized Stack installed.
- Every 30 minutes, CloudFix will create Change Requests (CR) for any Recommendations that have approved templates.
- Every 20 minutes, CloudFix will check the status of any CRs that are either
Finding CRs on CloudFix Interface
On the CloudFix Dashboard, if you open any of the Recommendations section (Easy, Medium, Advanced, or Best Practice) and click on any of the individual recommendations, it brings up a dialog with below information:
Below is the information related to the highlighted tabs:
Pending Approval- These are the list of AWS accounts for which you need to approve that Fixer's Template. This approval is applicable to all the eligible resources found under that AWS account. You can approve each account by clicking the corresponding
Available to Execute- After approval, the account/s along with their respective resources will move to this tab where you will be able to execute the Fixer for individual resources of that account. For the Fixer to be executed, you can select each resource individually or can select them all and then click
Execute. As time progresses, you will be able to see a live status of the Fixer execution.
Finished- All the completed Fixer executions (success or failed) are displayed in this tab.
Outdated- If CloudFix doesn't find the opportunities when performing the execution due to any reason (eg: resource was deleted from the AWS side), those opportunities are listed here.
On all the above tabs, there are filters provided for various columns for the ease of looking at only a subset of information. You can also sort the columns as per your requirements.
