Cloudcraft integration

What is Cloudcraft?

Cloudcraft is a popular tool used by over 200,000 cloud professionals to design professional architecture diagrams in minutes. You can even automatically generate diagrams from your cloud environment and display live status for imported components.

What can I do with this integration?

With Cloud Pegboard's integration to Cloudcraft, you can automatically create Cloud Pegboard lists of AWS services based on your library of Cloudcraft blueprints. This makes it easy to create lists that are in sync with the services that are relevant to you based on what AWS services you actually use.

Creating lists in Cloud Pegboard makes it simple to get a filtered view of the Cloud Pegboard Services Table that displays only those services in the selected list. This helps you quickly find the the information that you need to develop your solutions. Additionally, you can flag a list to be "watched" so that any changes or news about services in a watch list are sent to you in daily or weekly notification emails.

How does it work?

At the click of a button (see your profile page), Cloud Pegboard will create a list for each of your Cloudcraft blueprints. The list name will match the blueprint name and will contain the list of AWS services that are used within each blueprint. If the lists of services that you use in your blueprints change, you can simply re-import and the Cloud Pegboard lists will be refreshed.

Getting started

All you need to do is create an API key from your Cloudcraft PRO account and then enter it into your Cloud Pegboard profile (set key here). After that, you can just click the Cloudcraft IMPORT button and your lists will automatically be generated/refreshed.

Help and feedback

If you require any assistance with the integration or have any feedback, please contact us so that we can help.

If you are not using the Cloudcraft PRO version (required to get an API key for the automatic integration), you can instead use the Cloudcraft EXPORT menu and select "Terraform code export". You can then send the zip file to Cloud Pegboard for importing the extracted list of AWS services (we'll add an upload interface if we see demand for this manual export mode).

Example after selecting a Cloudcraft-based list in the Services Table view

Table is filtered to only show the 8 unique services used in the diagram. The diagram automatically renders below the table for reference.
