Working with notification rule targets

A notification rule target is a destination that defines where you want notifications to be sent when a notification rule's event conditions are met. You can choose between Amazon SNS topics and AWS Chatbot clients that are configured for Slack channels. You can create an Amazon SNS topic as a target as part of creating a notification rule (recommended). You can also choose an existing Amazon SNS topic in the same AWS Region as the notification rule, but you must configure it with the required policy. If you choose to use an AWS Chatbot client as a target, you must first create that client in AWS Chatbot.

If you want to extend the reach of notifications, you can manually configure integration between notifications and AWS Chatbot so that notifications are sent to Amazon Chime chatrooms. You can then choose the Amazon SNS topic configured for that AWS Chatbot client as the target for the notification rule. For more information, see To integrate notifications with AWS Chatbot and Amazon Chime.

You can use the Developer Tools console or the AWS CLI to manage notification targets. You can use the console or the AWS CLI to create and configure Amazon SNS topics and AWS Chatbot clients as targets. You can also configure integration between the Amazon SNS topics that you configure as targets and AWS Chatbot. This makes it possible for you to send notifications to Amazon Chime chatrooms. For more information, see Configure integration between notifications and AWS Chatbot.
