SendContactMethodVerification - Amazon Lightsail

SendContactMethodVerification

Sends a verification request to an email contact method to ensure it's owned by the requester. SMS contact methods don't need to be verified.

A contact method is used to send you notifications about your Amazon Lightsail resources. You can add one email address and one mobile phone number contact method in each AWS Region. However, SMS text messaging is not supported in some AWS Regions, and SMS text messages cannot be sent to some countries/regions. For more information, see Notifications in Amazon Lightsail.

A verification request is sent to the contact method when you initially create it. Use this action to send another verification request if a previous verification request was deleted, or has expired.

Important

Notifications are not sent to an email contact method until after it is verified, and confirmed as valid.
