AWS.Config.Recorder.Meta

Resource ID Format

For Config Recorder Meta resources, the resource ID is constructed as such:

[AccountId]::AWS.Config.Recorder.Meta

This allows you to differentiate between Config Recorder Meta resources across all AWS accounts you have linked by looking at the characters before the first colon.
