EC2

Note: if you are running CloudGraph locally you can view the interactive, automatically generated documentation in either GraphQL Playground or Altair by clicking the docs button on the right-hand side of the screen. After reading the below information we highly suggest you use one of these tools to test your queries as they will autocomplete fields for you and let you know if your queries are valid before you even submit them.

Overview

You can currently query the following attributes and connections on an AWS EC2 Instance

GraphQL
|

Filtering

Get data for a single AWS EC2 Instance that you know the ID for:

GraphQL
|

Get data for a single EC2 Instance that you know the ARN for:

GraphQL
|

Get data for all of the EC2 Instances in a certain AWS account:

GraphQL
|

Get data for all of the EC2 Instances that are NOT in a certain AWS account:

GraphQL
|

Advanced Filtering

Get data for all of the EC2 Instances that have EIPs in them:

GraphQL
|

Use multiple filter selectors, (i.e. has, and, not, or) to get data for all of the EC2 Instances that have ALBs AND a Placement Group OR that do not have EIPs. Note that you can use has, and, not, or completely independently of each other:

GraphQL
|

You may also filter using a regex when filtering on a string field like, privateIps if you want to look for a value that matches say, 10.0.0.0:

Ordering

You can order the results you get back either asc or desc depending on your preference:

GraphQL
|

Only select and return the first two EC2 Instances that are found:

GraphQL
|

Only select and return the first two EC2 Instances that are found, but offset by one so EC2 Instances two & three are returned:

GraphQL
|

Aggregation

Count the number of EC2 Instances across all scanned AWS accounts:

GraphQL
|

Count the number of EC2 Instances in a single account. Note that you can apply all of the same filters that are listed above to aggregate queries:

GraphQL
|

Examples

Find all the burstable T series instances:

GraphQL
|

For each M5 EC2 Instance in the us-east-1 region for the AWS Account, 12345 get the ARN, daily cost, and EBS Volume that is its boot disk:

GraphQL
|

Find all of the EC2 Instances that have a tag of Environment:Production for a single AWS Account:

GraphQL
|

With CloudGraph you can run multiple queries at the same time so you can combine the above two queries if you like:

GraphQL
|

Kitchen Sink

Putting it all together; get all data for all EC2 Instances across all regions for all scanned AWS accounts in a single query. For the purposes of this example we will only get direct children of the EC2 Instances but if you want to it's easy to go from say, EC2 Instance -> Subnet -> VPC...etc:
