AWS::RDS::EventSubscription

Use the AWS::RDS::EventSubscription resource to get notifications for Amazon Relational Database Service events through the Amazon Simple Notification Service. For more information, see Using Amazon RDS Event Notification in the Amazon Relational Database Service User Guide.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

Copy
{ "Type" : "AWS::RDS::EventSubscription", "Properties" : { "Enabled" : Boolean, "EventCategories" : [ String, ... ], "SnsTopicArn" : String, "SourceIds" : [ String, ... ], "SourceType" : String } }

YAML

Copy
Type: "AWS::RDS::EventSubscription" Properties: Enabled: Boolean EventCategories: - String SnsTopicArn: String SourceIds: - String SourceType: String

Properties

Enabled

Indicates whether to activate the subscription. If you don't specify this property, AWS CloudFormation activates the subscription.

Required: No

Type: Boolean

Update requires: No interruption

EventCategories

A list of event categories that you want to subscribe to for a given source type. If you don't specify this property, you are notified about all event categories. For more information, see Using Amazon RDS Event Notification in the Amazon Relational Database Service User Guide.

Required: No

Type: List of String values

Update requires: No interruption

SnsTopicArn

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an Amazon SNS topic that you want to send event notifications to.

Required: Yes

Type: String

Update requires: Replacement

SourceIds

A list of identifiers for which Amazon RDS provides notification events.

If you don't specify a value, notifications are provided for all sources. If you specify multiple values, they must be of the same type. For example, if you specify a database instance ID, all other values must be database instance IDs.

Required: No

Type: List of String values

Update requires: No interruption

SourceType

The type of source for which Amazon RDS provides notification events. For example, if you want to be notified of events generated by a database instance, set this parameter to db-instance. If you don't specify a value, notifications are provided for all source types. For valid values, see the SourceType parameter for the CreateEventSubscription action in the Amazon Relational Database Service API Reference.

Required: Conditional. If you specify the SourceIds or EventCategories property, you must specify this property.

Type: String

Update requires: Replacement if you're removing this property after it was previously specified. All other updates require no interruption.

Return Value

When the logical ID of this resource is provided to the Ref intrinsic function, Ref returns the resource name. For example:

Copy
{ "Ref": "myEventSubscription" }

For the resource with the logical ID myEventSubscription, Ref returns the Amazon RDS event subscription name, such as: mystack-myEventSubscription-1DDYF1E3B3I.

For more information about using the Ref function, see Ref.

Example

The following snippet creates an event subscription for an existing database instance db-instance-1 and a database with the logical ID myDBInstance, which is declared elsewhere in the same template.

JSON

Copy
"myEventSubscription": { "Type": "AWS::RDS::EventSubscription", "Properties": { "EventCategories": ["configuration change", "failure", "deletion"], "SnsTopicArn": "arn:aws:sns:us-west-2:123456789012:example-topic", "SourceIds": ["db-instance-1", { "Ref" : "myDBInstance" }], "SourceType":"db-instance", "Enabled" : false } }

YAML

Copy
myEventSubscription: Type: "AWS::RDS::EventSubscription" Properties: EventCategories: - "configuration change" - "failure" - "deletion" SnsTopicArn: "arn:aws:sns:us-west-2:123456789012:example-topic" SourceIds: - "db-instance-1" - Ref: "myDBInstance" SourceType: "db-instance" Enabled: false
