(Optional) Creating a new Amazon SNS topic

You can use an existing Amazon SNS topic or create a new one. We recommend that you use a topic of the Standard type, so that you can forward alerts from the topic to email, SMS, or HTTP.

To create a new Amazon SNS topic to use as your alert manager receiver, follow the steps in Step 1: Create a topic. Be sure to choose Standard for the topic type.

If you want to receive emails every time a message is sent to that Amazon SNS topic, follow the steps in Step 2: Create a subscription to the topic.
