Amazon SNS notifications for AMI products - AWS Marketplace

Amazon SNS notifications for AMI products

To receive notifications, you subscribe to the AWS Marketplace Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topics provided to you during product creation. The topics provide notifications about changes to customers’ subscriptions for your products. For example, you can know when customers accept a private offer.

Note

During the product creation process, you'll receive the actual Amazon Resource Name (ARN) to the SNS topic. For example: arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:123456789012:aws-mp-subscription-notification-PRODUCTCODE

The following Amazon SNS topic is available for AMI products:

Amazon SNS topic: aws-mp-subscription-notification

Each message in the aws-mp-subscription-notification topic has the following format.

{ "action": "<action-name>", "customer-identifier": " X01EXAMPLEX", "product-code": "n0123EXAMPLEXXXXXXXXXXXX", "offer-identifier": "offer-abcexample123" }

The <action-name> will vary depending on the notification. Possible actions are:

  • subscribe-success

  • subscribe-fail

  • unsubscribe-pending

  • unsubscribe-success

The offer-identifier only appears in the notification if the offer is a private offer.

Subscribing an Amazon SQS queue to the Amazon SNS topic

We recommend subscribing an Amazon SQS queue to the provided SNS topics. For detailed instructions on creating an SQS queue and subscribing the queue to a topic, see Subscribing an Amazon SQS queue to an Amazon SNS topic in the Amazon Simple Notification Service Developer Guide.

Note

You can only subscribe to AWS Marketplace SNS topics from the AWS account used to sell the products. However, you can forward the messages to a different account. For more information, see Sending Amazon SNS messages to an Amazon SQS queue in a different account in the Amazon Simple Notification Service Developer Guide.

Polling the SQS queue for notifications

After you subscribe your SQS queue to an SNS topic, the messages are stored in SQS. You must define a service that continually polls the queue, looks for messages, and handles them accordingly.
