I would like to know the riskRules for each question of the 6 Well-Architected Framework Pillars. When executing a WAFR, you have to answer multiple multiple questions. For example:
- SEC 1. How do you securely operate your workload?
- REL 1. How do you manage service quotas and constraints?
- and many more
Each of these questions contain tickboxes which are called "best practices". These best practices are categorised in 3 categories:
- Medium (MRI)
- High (HRI)
When answering the questions, something called "riskRules" will decide whether your question will be a HRI or MRI. When solving issues and hence checking more best practices boxes in your question, your HRI could become a MRI. This will be shown in the Well-Architected dashboard and you can use this to keep track of your progress.
I would like to build some automation around the Well-Architected tool and when I did my research I found that you can define your own riskRules if you are creating a Custom Lens. You can see how that works over here: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/wellarchitected/latest/userguide/lenses-format-specification.html#lenses-format-risk-rules.
This made me think that I would like to know what the riskRules are on the questions that are part of the 6 pillars. I can use this information in deciding which best practices need to be solved in order to go from a HRI to a MRI.
Is there anyone out there who can provide me with this information? Thank you in advance!
Thank you for your answer, it's much appreciated. I actually was already aware of this, but this is not what I am looking for. Allow me to explain why not.
Whenever a best practice is categorised as HRI it does not mean the Well-Architected tool will also see it as an individual HRI.
For example, it could be that you have to fix 2 or maybe 3 HRI for a best practice to be overall not longer marked as a HRI by the dashboard / tool.
So it comes down to that the HRI's the dashboard is showing are based on some risk rules that are applied on the questions that you answer.
What I am looking for are those riskRules for all questions of the 6 existing pillars.
