Notifications that AWS Config Sends to an Amazon SNS topic


Before AWS Config can send notifications to an Amazon SNS topic, you must first set up the configuration recorder and the delivery channel. For more information, see Managing the Configuration Recorder and Managing the Delivery Channel.

You can configure AWS Config to stream configuration changes and notifications to an Amazon SNS topic. For example, when a resource is updated, you can get a notification sent to your email, so that you can view the changes. You can also be notified when AWS Config evaluates your custom or managed rules against your resources. For more information, see Logging and Monitoring in AWS Config.

AWS Config sends notifications for the following events:

  • Configuration item change for a resource.

  • Configuration history for a resource was delivered for your account.

  • Configuration snapshot for recorded resources was started and delivered for your account.

  • Compliance state of your resources and whether they are compliant with your rules.

  • Evaluation started for a rule against your resources.

  • AWS Config failed to deliver the notification to your account.
