Step 3: Create an Amazon SNS Topic and Subscribe to It

  1. Create an SNS topic using the Amazon SNS console. For instructions, see  Create a Topic in the Amazon Simple Notification Service Developer Guide.

  2. Subscribe to the topic. For this exercise, use email as the communication protocol. For instructions, see  Subscribe to a Topic in the Amazon Simple Notification Service Developer Guide.

You use this Amazon SNS topic in the next step when you configure a CloudWatch alarm so that when AWS Lambda emits an error the alarm will publish a notification to this topic.
