                            Our free Chrome extension makes it faster to open new service consoles and find existing open console windows/tabs.

Using this extension results in fewer extraneous AWS consoles and makes it faster to find and focus existing consoles. Also, time is saved due to fewer page loads since the extension just focuses to an existing loaded tab whenever possible.

Context menus (right-click on selected text in a browser window) provide added convenience that allow you to open either an AWS console or Cloud Pegboard datasheet page by simply right-clicking on the name of an AWS service on any web page.

See https://cloudpegboard.com/extensionhelp.html for the most up to date and more readable version of this description.

# Features
- Customize and personalize the AWS console shortcuts bar to be far more efficient when using the console (see below)
- Define and display the current environment type (Prod, Dev, N/A) for each login profile (user/role @account) to reduce risk inadvertent production changes
- Adds context menus to open AWS consoles and/or Cloud Pegboard datasheets (see below)
- Highly configurable to meet your personal style and needs

## Shortcuts bar contents
- Dynamically pick list of shortcuts to display (your lists often correspond to projects or activities)
- Set appearance of shortcuts bar to be text only, icons only, icons and text
- Option to highly abbreviate text labels to allow more shortcuts to fit on shortcuts bar
- Hover menus for shortcuts show full service name and provide a link to open the Cloud Pegboard datasheet for the service

## Shortcuts bar functionality
- If a tab for a given service is already open, clicking the shortcut just focuses to it instead of opening a new tab. This reduces the number of open tabs, reduces time-consuming page reloads, and makes it easy to find existing tabs since you can just click on the shortcuts bar to bring the service’s existing tab into focus.
- If no tab open for a given service, the shortcut click will just open a new tab.
- Can customize the shortcuts bar click behavior to choose from the above behavior, or to choose to always open in a new tab, to open in a new window, or to open in the current tab
- Click "Datasheet" link in hover menu to open the datasheet for the corresponding service. A service datasheet is a single page that has all information about a service on a single page.

## Region menu
- If the current region is not in your My Regions list (if you have one), then the region name on the top navigation bar in the console will be highlighted in orange to make it clear to you that you are possible not in an expected region.
- The region code is added to the region name on the top navigation bar.
- The top of the regions dropdown menu is prepended with your personalized list of My Regions if you have selected any My Regions in Cloud Pegboard.

## Context menus
- On any web page, right-click ("context menu") on a text selection to open the Cloud Pegboard datasheet for the selected service name. A service datasheet is a single page that has all information about a service on a single page.
- On any web page, right-click ("context menu") on a text selection to open an AWS console for the selected service name
- You can configure one, both, or none of the above. If you enable both, they are grouped under a single Cloud Pegboard menu. If you enable just one, it is at the top level of the context menu.

## Other features
- Supports Chrome Sync and syncs across all Chrome devices so that your lists and options are consistent across devices
- Does not use cookies and therefore you don’t loose your shortcuts when you clear cookies or use incognito mode
- Works in incognito mode (necessary when working with multiple AWS accounts at the same time)

## What is a Cloud Pegboard datasheet?
A datasheet is a single web page for a given AWS service that contains all information (or direct links to details) about an AWS service in one location. Information categories include, documentation (e.g., development doc, Quotas, Pricing, FAQs, etc.), technical references (list of supported regions, encryption support, etc.), development references (links to service-specific reference information for IAM, CloudFormat, CDK, Boto3, Terraform, ARNs, etc.), code samples, training resources, compliance statuses, announcements, and blogs, re:Invent videos and slides, and more.

## What is Cloud Pegboard?
Cloud Pegboard is a free service to provide easy and fast access to AWS service-related information. The datasheets discussed above are a central capability. Additionally, there is a table view which is helpful for looking at multiple services at once. You can also optionally get daily or weekly update notices that organize changes and news by service. By placing “watches” on one or more of your service lists, you can limit the information you receive to just those services that are relevant to you (you can also choose to watch all).

Cloud Pegboard is an essential tool for AWS users whether or not you use the Chrome extension. Sign up free at CloudPegboard.com.

# How to use

## Getting started
- Add extension to Chrome from the Chrome Web Store
- Create a free Cloud Pegboard account (https://cloudpegboard.com)
- Create one or more lists of services in the Cloud Pegboard datasheet dashboard
- If you already have lists created before you install the extension, you will need to visit the dashboard once to automatically sync your lists to the extension (after you do this, all future changes are automatically pushed to the extension).

## Using shortcuts
- Open an AWS console and click the Cloud Pegboard extension icon to select one of your lists. The AWS console’s shortcuts bar will change to show the services in the selected list.
- Click on the service name, icon, or abbreviated name to open a console for that service. The default behavior is to open a new tab if a tab for that service is not already open. If a tab is open (via the extension), then the existing tab will be made active instead of opening a new tab and loading a new page. Other configuration options allow you to make a click always open a new tab, to open a new window, or to open the service console in the current tab.
- You can customize behaviors using the extension’s Options menu
- If you change options, you’ll need to reload your AWS console windows
- When you hover over a shortcut a menu bubble will appear that shows the full service name and a link to directly open the Cloud Pegboard datasheet for that service. A service datasheet is a single page that has all information about a service on a single page.

## Region menu

To configure your personalized My Regions list, click on My Regions in your Cloud Pegboard profile. Once configured, your My Regions list will be used to warn you if you are in a region that is not in your My Regions list, and will be used to prepend quick selections at the top of the regions menu dropdown in the console.

You can enable/disable these behaviors via the extension's Options page.

## Context menus
- To use context menus on any web page, select text that is the name of an AWS service
- Right-click and select one of the following menu choices:
      Open Cloud Pegboard datasheet for ""
      Open AWS console for ""
- If the corresponding service cannot be automatically determined, the Cloud Pegboard datasheet will open with the search box pre-filled.
- Tip: You can control which of the menu items appear in the context menu from the extension Options page. If you generally don't use one of the options, then it is best to disable it since if both are enabled, they are ground under a wrapper menu and thus a second click is required.

## Incognito mode (use for multiple accounts)
Unless you are using the Switch Role feature, if you want to have AWS consoles active for multiple accounts, they will need to be open in incognito windows. This extension makes it possible to have your shortcuts work in incognito windows and to have different shortcuts lists for different accounts.

If you want to use in incognito mode, right-click on the extension icon, select “Manage extensions”, and enable “Allow in incognito.”

# Roadmap
- Additional UI options for seeing your shortcuts (other than just what fits in the top shortcuts bar).
- Many more enhancements are in queue. Please let us know what is important for you to help us prioritize.

# Permissions explanation
- This extension changes the html of the AWS console (e.g., the shortcuts bar)
- This extension receives messages from the Cloud Pegboard web client running in your browser (only when you are logged in to Cloud Pegboard) so that your Cloud Pegboard web page can send your lists of services to the extension. There is no server communication to/from the extension.
