Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To subscribe to AWS Config

The following command creates the default delivery channel and configuration recorder. The command also specifies the Amazon S3 bucket and Amazon SNS topic to which AWS Config will deliver configuration information:

aws configservice subscribe --s3-bucket config-bucket-123456789012 --sns-topic arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:123456789012:config-topic --iam-role arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/ConfigRole-A1B2C3D4E5F6

Output:

Using existing S3 bucket: config-bucket-123456789012
Using existing SNS topic: arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:123456789012:config-topic
Subscribe succeeded:
