Getting Started with Amazon EventBridge - Amazon EventBridge

Getting Started with Amazon EventBridge

Use EventBridge rules to determine which events you want to trigger a target. For tutorials on specific scenarios and specific targets, see Amazon EventBridge Tutorials.


  • The targets you associate with a rule must be in the same Region as the rule.

  • Some target types might not be available in every Region. For more information, see Regions and Endpoints in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.

  • Creating rules with built-in targets is supported only in the AWS Management Console.

  • If you create a rule with an encrypted Amazon SQS queue as a target, you must have the following section included in your AWS Key Management Service key policy. It allows the event to be successfully delivered to the encrypted queue.

    { "Sid": "Allow EventBridge to use the key", "Effect": "Allow", "Principal": { "Service": "" }, "Action": [ "kms:Decrypt", "kms:GenerateDataKey" ], "Resource": "*" }
