Setting Up Amazon SES Event Publishing

This section describes what you need to do to configure Amazon SES to publish your email sending events to Amazon CloudWatch or Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose.

After you create a configuration set, you add one or more event destinations (CloudWatch or Kinesis Data Firehose) to the configuration set, and configure parameters unique to the event destination.
