Implementing exclusion tags for specific resources

HERE'S WHY

You may have resources within Azure that should always be ignored by Drata's compliance automation tests. Sometimes these are new resource that spin up each day. The exclusion tag functionality will allow you to exclude these resources with a tag within Azure.

HERE'S HOW

We support tag-based exclusion of Azure resources from Drata's monitors. In Azure, these tags should have a Name field of DrataExclude. This is case-sensitive; drataexclude will not pass.

Container instances

1. You can add a tag during the initial configuration of a resource.

2. You can also add tags to existing resources. From the Container Instances dashboard, choose the offending resource, then navigate to its Tags menu.

3. Add a tag with the name DrataExclude, then click Apply or Review + create to save your changes.
