Amazon S3 Bucket NotificationConfiguration

Describes the notification configuration for an AWS::S3::Bucket resource.


If you create the target resource and related permissions in the same template, you might have a circular dependency.

For example, you might use the AWS::Lambda::Permission resource to grant the S3 bucket to invoke a Lambda function. However, AWS CloudFormation can't create the S3 bucket until the bucket has permission to invoke the function (AWS CloudFormation checks if the S3 bucket can invoke the function). If you're using Refs to pass the bucket name, this leads to a circular dependency.

To avoid this dependency, you can create all resources without specifying the notification configuration. Then, update the stack with a notification configuration.
