The Assessment resource has methods to run compliance assessments on cloud accounts, and view the results.

An assessment runs a bundle, which consists of a collection of rules (or tests) that test the properties and capabilities of your cloud account and its entities.

The methods in this resource are synchronous; the response will be sent when the assessment is complete and will include the results. The response is typically sent within a few seconds, but for some assessments (on environments with a large number of entities, or bundles with a large number of tests), this could take
several minutes.

Assessments can also be run on AWS CloudFormation Template (CFT) files.

You can get a list of all the available bundles for your account using the Compliance Policy resource.

See results of previous assessments using the Assessment History V2 resource.

The response contains the results of the assessment.
