The source of the event, such as an AWS service, that triggers AWS Config to evaluate your AWS resources.

The frequency that you want AWS Config to run evaluations for a custom rule with a periodic trigger. If you specify a value for MaximumExecutionFrequency, then MessageType must use the ScheduledNotification value.

By default, rules with a periodic trigger are evaluated every 24 hours. To change the frequency, specify a valid value for the MaximumExecutionFrequency parameter.

Public Property MessageType Amazon.ConfigService.MessageType

Gets and sets the property MessageType.

The type of notification that triggers AWS Config to run an evaluation for a rule. You can specify the following notification types:

  • ConfigurationItemChangeNotification - Triggers an evaluation when AWS Config delivers a configuration item as a result of a resource change.

  • OversizedConfigurationItemChangeNotification - Triggers an evaluation when AWS Config delivers an oversized configuration item. AWS Config may generate this notification type when a resource changes and the notification exceeds the maximum size allowed by Amazon SNS.

  • ScheduledNotification - Triggers a periodic evaluation at the frequency specified for MaximumExecutionFrequency.

  • ConfigurationSnapshotDeliveryCompleted - Triggers a periodic evaluation when AWS Config delivers a configuration snapshot.

If you want your custom rule to be triggered by configuration changes, specify both ConfigurationItemChangeNotification and OversizedConfigurationItemChangeNotification.
