Getting Started with Amazon CloudWatch Events

You can set up simple rules that match events and route them to one or more AWS Lambda functions, Amazon SNS topics, Amazon SQS queues, streams in Amazon Kinesis Streams, or built-in targets. This section walks you through scenarios that can get you started using CloudWatch Events.


Some target types might not be available in every region. For more information about the endpoints that represent each region, see Regions and Endpoints in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.
