Amazon WorkSpaces Integration

Amazon WorkSpaces enables you to use cloud-based desktops in Windows OSs and Linux flavors. Monitor WorkSpaces with Site24x7 to view and analyze the number of available WorkSpaces, and the number of users accessing them.

Setup and configuration

  1. If you haven't done so already, enable access to your AWS resources between your AWS account and Site24x7's AWS account by either:
    • Creating Site24x7 as an IAM user, or 
    • Creating a cross account IAM role. Learn more.
  2. On the Integrate AWS Account page, check the box next to the WorkSpaces. Learn more.

Policies and permissions

The following permissions are required by Site24x7 to discover Workspaces and collect configuration information.

  • "workspace:Describe*" - Retrieves a list that describes the available WorkSpaces bundles.
  • "ds:Describe*" - Retrieves information about the directories that belong to this account.

Polling frequency

Site24x7 queries AWS to collect WorkSpaces performance metrics according to the configured poll frequency. The minimum poll interval supported is one minute, and the maximum is 24 hours. Learn more.

IT Automations

You can add automations for the AWS services supported by Site24x7. Log in to Site24x7 and go to Admin > IT Automation Templates (+) > Add Automation Templates. Once automations are added, you can schedule them to be executed one after the other.

You can now start, stop, reboot, or rebuild a WorkSpace using WorkSpaces automations.
