Excluded assets

Excluded assets are assets that do not appear in the Inventory. Some assets are automatically excluded by built-in exclusion rules. You can also exclude assets using rules you create.

Firefly automatically excludes assets from your Inventory so that they are not included in your IaC coverage calculation. Excluding assets from your inventory enables you to achieve optimal IaC coverage. Default components in your cloud account, such as subnets, VPCs, and default assets are automatically excluded using Firefly's custom exclusion rules. Exclusion rules conceal insignificant Inventory assets, and these assets do not appear in the filters or search. Excluded assets are also excluded from notifications.

Whenever you add an exclusion rule, it appears in the Inventory filter under Excluded Assets. You can search for a specific rule to view which assets are excluded by this rule.
