AWS Config, a service that enables you to assess, audit, and evaluate the configurations of your AWS resources, is introducing a new tiered pricing model for AWS Config rules, effective immediately.

With the new tiered pricing model for AWS Config rules, your costs can decrease based on the number of active AWS Config rules per Region across your AWS accounts. The new pricing model allows you to use AWS Config rules at scale with lower prices per active AWS Config rule per month at higher usage tiers. Prior to this new pricing model, AWS charged a flat price per rule per month.

The price of AWS Config for recording configuration items remains unchanged. This new pricing model applies to AWS Config rules only.
