How to Create Workloads

Workloads in nOps help you to group different AWS resources that have been created within your AWS environment. This makes it easier to carry out various assessments on those specific services that make up with Workload. These are the steps to create a workload in nOps

Click on the Workload tab.

This will lead us to the workloads page

On the Workloads page or Dashboard, we will find already created workloads if they exist, and if there are no workloads the page will be blank.

Click on the Create New Workload button to create a new workload. This will bring up a pop-up side menu, with a form to fill for creating the Workload

Fill the form, with the required information

Workload Name - This is the unique identifier for your workload.

  • AWS Account(s) - The AWS Account(s) where the resources for your workload live.
  • Workload Type - Defines the overall workload type. Please select “Well-Architected.”
  • Lens - nOps supports the AWS lens concept. Please select FTR for the lens type.
  • Environment - This defaults to Production and defines the environment from an AWS perspective.
  • Jira project - If you are using the built-in Jira integration, you will be able to select a Jira project to integrate with.
  • Description - A text description of your workload.

After you have filled out the metadata for your workload, you can click the gray bar that says, “Specify Workload Resource,” causing the query builder to slide into view. nOps allows you to specify rules that define which resources will be added to the workload.

  • Regions - The regions that nOps will pull resources from. This defaults to All.
  • AWS Managed Services - The AWS services that nOps will include in your workload. This defaults to All.
  • VPC - The VPCs that contain the resources that nOps will include in your workload. This defaults to All.
  • Tags - Select tags to be assigned to the resources you want to include, e.g., “ApplicationA.”

Click the Save button to create the workload

The workload is eventually created and displayed on the Workloads Dashboard.

To view details of the workload created, we can click on that particular workload
