API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

This operation configures notifications that will be sent when specific events happen to a vault. By default, you don't get any notifications.

To configure vault notifications, send a PUT request to the notification-configuration subresource of the vault. The request should include a JSON document that provides an Amazon SNS topic and specific events for which you want Amazon Glacier to send notifications to the topic.

Amazon SNS topics must grant permission to the vault to be allowed to publish notifications to the topic. You can configure a vault to publish a notification for the following vault events:

An AWS account has full permission to perform all operations (actions). However, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) users don't have any permissions by default. You must grant them explicit permission to perform specific actions. For more information, see Access Control Using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM).

For conceptual information and underlying REST API, see Configuring Vault Notifications in Amazon Glacier and Set Vault Notification Configuration in the Amazon Glacier Developer Guide.


For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to SetVaultNotificationsAsync.
