Configuring Dimensions

Updated 1 month ago by Shoreline

Resources in your environment have identifying information associated with them, known as tags. Tags indicate that a resource belongs to a particular category. We use tags to organize and filter resources into logical groups for monitoring, remediation...etc. In Shoreline, these logical groups are called dimensions. Up to 7 tags can be selected to create a dimension.

Once you have selected your dimensions, you can also specify the parent/child hierarchy of how the resources are displayed.

Here is how you configure dimensions:
