Resource Watcher is a service provided by default when an organization is activated. Therefore, after creating an organization, you can use the service by selecting Resource Watcher from Select Service without any additional action.
To be notified of various changes that occur in resources, you have to first define a resource group or resource tag before creating notifications. You can receive notifications on resources that have been created or changed after setting notifications.
You can manage resources by setting resource tags freely.
If you change resource tag names, you can also change tags that are already set on the resource. Resource Watcher automatically changes tags that are set on resources after modifying tag names for convenience and consistency. You can set more than one resource tags for a resource, and a resource tag ca be set for more than one resources. By using resource tags, you can select target resources from resource groups and notifications.
