Amazon Simple Email Service ConfigurationSetEventDestination EventDestination

For an Amazon SES configuration set event destination, the EventDestination property type specifies information about the event destination that the specified email sending events will be published to.


When you create or update an event destination, you must provide one, and only one, destination. The destination can be Amazon CloudWatch or Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose.

Event destinations are associated with configuration sets, which enable you to publish email sending events to Amazon CloudWatch or Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose. For information, see Using Amazon SES Configuration Sets in the Amazon Simple Email Service Developer Guide.

EventDestination is a property of the AWS::SES::ConfigurationSetEventDestination resource.
