Example Oversized Configuration Item Change Notification

When AWS Config detects a configuration change for a resource, it sends a configuration item notification. If the notification exceeds the maximum size allowed by Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS), the notification includes a brief summary of the configuration item. You can view the complete notification in the Amazon S3 bucket location specified in the s3BucketLocation field.

The following example notification shows a configuration item for an Amazon EC2 instance. The notification includes a summary of the changes and the location of the notification in the Amazon S3 bucket.
