AWS CloudFormation
User Guide (API Version 2010-05-15)


The AWS::SES::ConfigurationSetEventDestination resource specifies a configuration set event destination for Amazon SES. For more information, see CreateConfigurationSetEventDestination in the Amazon Simple Email Service API Reference.


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.

An event destination is the AWS service to which Amazon SES publishes the email sending events associated with a configuration set. For information, see Using Amazon SES Configuration Sets in the Amazon Simple Email Service Developer Guide.


To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:


{ "Type" : "AWS::SES::ConfigurationSetEventDestination", "Properties" : { "ConfigurationSetName" : String, "EventDestination" : EventDestination } }


Type: "AWS::SES::ConfigurationSetEventDestination" Properties: ConfigurationSetName: String EventDestination: EventDestination
