Using Amazon EventBridge with Interface VPC Endpoints - Amazon EventBridge

Using Amazon EventBridge with Interface VPC Endpoints

If you use Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) to host your AWS resources, you can establish a private connection between your VPC and EventBridge. Your resources on your VPC can use this connection to communicate with EventBridge.

With a VPC, you have control over your network settings, such as the IP address range, subnets, route tables, and network gateways. To connect your VPC to EventBridge, you define an interface VPC endpoint for EventBridge. The endpoint provides reliable, scalable connectivity to EventBridge without requiring an internet gateway, network address translation (NAT) instance, or VPN connection. For more information, see What is Amazon VPC in the Amazon VPC User Guide.

Interface VPC endpoints are powered by AWS PrivateLink, which enables private communication between AWS services using an elastic network interface with private IP addresses. For more information, see AWS PrivateLink and VPC endpoints.

When you use a private interface VPC endpoint, custom events your VPC sends to EventBridge use that endpoint. EventBridge then sends those events to other AWS services based on the rules and targets that you've configured. Once events are sent to another service you can receive them through either the public endpoint or a VPC endpoint for that service. For example, if you create a rule to send events to an Amazon SQS queue, you can configure an interface VPC endpoint for Amazon SQS to receive messages from that queue in your VPC without using the public endpoint.
