  • Users: Tracks assigned permissions and usage of various identities.
  • Groups: Tracks assigned permissions and usage of the group and the group members.
  • Active Resources: Tracks active resources (used in the last 90 days).
  • Active Tasks: Tracks active tasks (performed in the last 90 days).
  • Access Keys: Tracks the permission usage of access keys for a given user.
  • Serverless Functions: Tracks assigned permissions and usage of the serverless functions.
