Tutorial: Subscribing an Amazon SNS topic to AWS Chatbot

  • Note You can set up each supported AWS service to target one or more SNS topics to send notifications to AWS Chatbot. You do this using each AWS service's console, or using AWS CloudFormation. If you already have Amazon SNS topics set as targets for supported services, you can configure AWS Chatbot to use those topics. Notifications from subscribed topics will automatically appear in your chat channels without further configuration.
  • Note If your SNS topic is encrypted, you must add a section to your AWS KMS key policy to give the sending service permissions to post events to the encrypted SNS topics. For more information, see Setting up Amazon SNS topics.

Test notifications with AWS Chatbot using CloudWatch

  • Note CloudWatch alarms and events are separately configured and have different characteristics for use with AWS Chatbot.
