(Optional) Sending from Amazon SNS to other destinations - Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus

(Optional) Sending from Amazon SNS to other destinations

Currently, Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus can send alert messages directly to Amazon SNS only. You can configure Amazon SNS to send those messages on to other destinations such as email, webhook, Slack, and OpsGenie.

Email

To configure an Amazon SNS topic to output messages to email, create a subscription. In the Amazon SNS console, choose the Subscriptions tab to open the Subscriptions list page. Choose Create Subscription and select Email. Amazon SNS sends a confirmation email to the listed email address. After you accept the confirmation, you are able to receive Amazon SNS notifications as emails from the topic you subscribed to. For more information, see Subscribing to an Amazon SNS topic.

Webhook

To configure an Amazon SNS topic to output messages to a webhook endpoint, create a subscription. In the Amazon SNS console, choose the Subscriptions tab to open the Subscriptions list page. Choose Create Subscription and select HTTP/HTTPS. After you create the subscription, you must follow the confirmation steps to activate it. When it is active, your HTTP endpoint should receive the Amazon SNS notifications. For more information, see Subscribing to an Amazon SNS topic. For more information about using Slack webhooks to publish messages to various destinations, see How do I use webhooks to publish Amazon SNS messages to Amazon Chime, Slack, or Microsoft Teams?

Slack

To configure an Amazon SNS topic to output messages to Slack, you have two options. You can either integrate with Slack’s email-to-channel integration, which allows Slack to accept email messages and forward them to a Slack channel, or you can use a Lambda function to rewrite the Amazon SNS notification to Slack. For more information about forwarding emails to slack channels, see Confirming AWS SNS Topic Subscription for Slack Webhook. For more information about constructing a Lambda function to convert Amazon SNS messages to Slack, see How to integrate Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus with Slack.

OpsGenie

For information about how to configure an Amazon SNS topic to output messages to OpsGenie, see Integrate Opsgenie with Incoming Amazon SNS.
