Cloud Reports

Collects info about various cloud resources and analyzes them against best practices and give a JSON, CSV, HTML, or PDF reports.



These collect the information about various cloud resources from the cloud provider. This information later used by Analyzers to analyze.


Analyzers are the codified best practices for the cloud and these analyzes each best practice against the collected information and generates report which then consumed by Reporters to generate reports in a desired format.


These are for generating reports in various formats and currently supported formats are JSON, HTML and PDF.

AWS (Amazon Web Services)

We are implementing checks based on AWS Well Architected best practices. * AWS Collectors: Collects information from various AWS services. * AWS Analyzers: Analyzes the information collected. * Currently supported AWS service modules: * * acm: AWS Certificate Manager * * apigateway: Amazon APIGateway * * cloudfront: AWS CloudFront * * cloudwatch: AWS CloudWatch * * dynamodb: AWS DynamoDB * * ebs: AWS Elastic Block Storage * * ec2: AWS Elastic Cloud Computing * * elasticsearch: AWS Elasticsearch Service * * elb: AWS Elastic Load Balancer * * iam: AWS Identity and Access Management * * lambda: Amazon Lambda * * rds: AWS Relational Databases * * redshift: AWS Redshift * * resourcegroups: AWS Resource Groups * * route53: AWS Route 53 * * s3: AWS Simple Storage Service * * sns: AWS Simple Notification Service * * sqs: AWS Simple Queue Service * * route53: AWS Elastic Load Balancer * * trails: AWS CloudTrails * * vpc: AWS Virtual Private Cloud

Install NodeJS

This package is based on NodeJS framework so you can it install from here.

Installing cloud-reports from source


git clone

To get updates

If you have already cloned this repository before then for getting new updates, change directory to the cloud-reports directory and then do git pull.

git pull

Installing and Building

Make sure you are in the cloud-reports directory.

To convert typescript to javascript

npm run build 


This collects and analyzes information about your AWS cloud and stores as a report file with name scan_report.pdf. * To run for all modules

npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile
* To run on an EC2 instance * It is recommended not to keep the hard coded credentials on the instance so make sure to configure IAM EC2 instance profile role with Read access to AWS account. * Kindly make sure the machine has minimum 2 GB RAM available and the IAM role has atleast ReadOnly access to the AWS account. * Once the above conditions are met, CloudReports can run on the instance using instance profile role so no need to pass the profile parameter.
npm run scan -- -m s3,acm
  • To run for specific module
    npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile -m s3,acm
  • To run for single module
    npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile  -m s3
  • To run for specific regions
    npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile -m s3,acm -r ap-south-1,ap-southeast-1
  • We can generate report in following formats:
  • To generate HTML report file
    npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile  -f html
  • To generate PDF report file
    npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile  -f pdf
    npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile  -f pdf -i # This will only report issues
  • To generate CSV report file
    npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile  -f csv
    npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile  -f csv -i # This will only report issues
  • To generate JSON report file
    npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile  -f json
  • To generate report with custom name
    npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile  -f json -o my-dev-account
    #### Sample reports


You can run this tool in debug mode to generate intermediate reports: collectorreport.json and analyzerreport.json

npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile  -f pdf -d

Reusing Collector report

When we are working on analyzers, we will be testing them multiple times and every time collecting data will cause delays, to avoid such delays you can use the following command to reuse already collected collector report.

npm run scan -- --profile Your-AWS-profile  -f pdf -d -u

Install as npm module to an existing package

Install cloud-reports npm module

npm install -S cloud-reports


Make sure you have initialized AWS.config, otherwise this will use default AWS profile.

    const cloudReporter = require('cloud-reports');
    // To collect for all modules
    const collectionPromise = cloudReporter.collect()
    // To collect for specific modules
    // const collectedJson = cloudReporter.collect(['s3', 'iam']);
    // const collectedJson = cloudReporter.collect('vpc');
    const analysisPromise = collectionPromise.then((collectedJson) => cloudReporter.analyze(collectedJson));
    analysisPromise.then((analysisJson) => console.log(JSON.stringify(analysisJson, null, 2)));

Multiple credentials support

You may want to run the report for multiple accounts with different set of credentials at once, then in that case you can pass different credentials to collect method. ```js const cloudReporter = require('cloud-reports'); const account1CollectionPromise = cloudReporter.collect(all, credentials1); const account2CollectionPromise = cloudReporter.collect(all, credentials2);

const analysisPromise = Promise.all([account1CollectionPromise, account2CollectionPromise])
                               .then((collectedJsons) => {
                                   return => {
                                       return cloudReporter.analyze(collectedJson);
analysisPromise.then((analysisJsons) => console.log(JSON.stringify(analysisJsons, null, 2)));
### Update service regions[Broken as AWS changed the documentation UI]
We have written a [script]( which updates the [AWS regions data](

node src/scripts/updateAwsServiceRegionsData.js ```


Currently this application only supports AWS, but can be extendable to other cloud providers. Contributions are most welcome.
