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, see Regions and Endpoints in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.
Creating rules with built-in targets is supported only in the AWS Management Console.
