See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--resource-arn <value>
--event <value>
--topic-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--resource-arn (string)

The ARN of the assessment template that is used during the event for which you want to receive SNS notifications.

--event (string)

The event for which you want to receive SNS notifications.

Possible values:


--topic-arn (string)

The ARN of the SNS topic to which the SNS notifications are sent.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

The following subscribe-to-event command enables the process of sending Amazon SNS notifications about the ASSESSMENT_RUN_COMPLETED event to the topic with the ARN of arn:aws:sns:us-west-2:123456789012:exampletopic:

aws inspector subscribe-to-event --event ASSESSMENT_RUN_COMPLETED --resource-arn arn:aws:inspector:us-west-2:123456789012:target/0-nvgVhaxX/template/0-7sbz2Kz0 --topic arn:aws:sns:us-west-2:123456789012:exampletopic
