AWS::SES::ConfigurationSetEventDestination EventDestination

Contains information about the event destination that email sending events are published to. Event destinations are associated with configuration sets. When you specify an event destination, you provide one, and only one, destination. You can send event data to Amazon CloudWatch or Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose. For more information about using configuration sets, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide.


You can't specify Amazon SNS event destinations in CloudFormation templates.
