Dashbird supports flexible multi-environment and multi-account setups. There are two levels of grouping in Dashbird: environment level (Production, Staging, Development, QA etc.) and integration level (one or more AWS accounts). The environment level is free-form and you can create as many environments as you like and each environments contains one or more integrations.
The first environment is created during onboarding. You can create additional environments by navigating to Settings -> Manage accounts.
Once a new environment has been created, you can switch between them from the bottom-left menu.
To manage integrations, navigate to Settings -> Integrations. You can connect as many AWS accounts under the environment as you like by clicking on “Connect AWS account”. From there, a regular onboarding flow will continue.
Resource filtering and configuring
To make sure you keep within your monthly allowance, we recommend filtering your AWS resources to monitor the ones that are needed.
In your Account Settings under the Integrations section in the Dashbird app, locate the cloud resource you want to select and click on the icon.
Clicking on the desired resource will take you to its settings page. Here you can enable Insights and configure the polling interval for this resource:
At the bottom of the page, you will see two sections (with Lambdas four sections):
- Include resources by tag
- Exclude resources by tag
- Include resources by name (Lambdas only)
- Exclude resources by name (Lambdas only)
Specify a key-value pair in the first one to select which resources you’d like Dashbird to monitor for you. Include key-value pairs in the second one to determine resources that should be excluded from Dashbird monitoring. Make sure your AWS resources are tagged appropriately according to the key-value pairs selected in our system.
For Lambda functions you also have the option to filter the resources by name.
Filters are glob patterns. Use an asterisk (*) as a wildcard to match one or multiple characters.
Example: Exclude all the resources that contain the phrase “test-python” and start with “alarms”.
