create-event-subscription

Description

Creates an RDS event notification subscription. This operation requires a topic Amazon Resource Name (ARN) created by either the RDS console, the SNS console, or the SNS API. To obtain an ARN with SNS, you must create a topic in Amazon SNS and subscribe to the topic. The ARN is displayed in the SNS console.

You can specify the type of source (SourceType ) that you want to be notified of and provide a list of RDS sources (SourceIds ) that triggers the events. You can also provide a list of event categories (EventCategories ) for events that you want to be notified of. For example, you can specify SourceType = db-instance , SourceIds = mydbinstance1 , mydbinstance2 and EventCategories = Availability , Backup .

If you specify both the SourceType and SourceIds , such as SourceType = db-instance and SourceIds = myDBInstance1 , you are notified of all the db-instance events for the specified source. If you specify a SourceType but do not specify SourceIds , you receive notice of the events for that source type for all your RDS sources. If you don't specify either the SourceType or the SourceIds , you are notified of events generated from all RDS sources belonging to your customer account.

For more information about subscribing to an event for RDS DB engines, see Subscribing to Amazon RDS event notification in the Amazon RDS User Guide .

For more information about subscribing to an event for Aurora DB engines, see Subscribing to Amazon RDS event notification in the Amazon Aurora User Guide .

--subscription-name (string)

The name of the subscription.

--sns-topic-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the SNS topic created for event notification. The ARN is created by Amazon SNS when you create a topic and subscribe to it.

--source-type (string)

--event-categories (list)

A list of event categories for a particular source type (SourceType ) that you want to subscribe to. You can see a list of the categories for a given source type in the "Amazon RDS event categories and event messages" section of the ` Amazon RDS User Guide https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/UserGuide/USER_Events.Messages.html`__ or the ` Amazon Aurora User Guide https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/AuroraUserGuide/USER_Events.Messages.html`__ . You can also see this list by using the DescribeEventCategories operation.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--source-ids (list)

The list of identifiers of the event sources for which events are returned. If not specified, then all sources are included in the response. An identifier must begin with a letter and must contain only ASCII letters, digits, and hyphens. It can't end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens.

Constraints:

  • If SourceIds are supplied, SourceType must also be provided.
  • If the source type is a DB instance, a DBInstanceIdentifier value must be supplied.
  • If the source type is a DB cluster, a DBClusterIdentifier value must be supplied.
  • If the source type is a DB parameter group, a DBParameterGroupName value must be supplied.
  • If the source type is a DB security group, a DBSecurityGroupName value must be supplied.

  • If the source type is a DB cluster snapshot, a DBClusterSnapshotIdentifier value must be supplied.
  • If the source type is an RDS Proxy, a DBProxyName value must be supplied.

(string)

"string" "string" ...

--enabled | --no-enabled (boolean)

A value that indicates whether to activate the subscription. If the event notification subscription isn't activated, the subscription is created but not active.

--tags (list)

A list of tags. For more information, see Tagging Amazon RDS Resources in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

(structure)

Metadata assigned to an Amazon RDS resource consisting of a key-value pair.

Key -> (string)

A key is the required name of the tag. The string value can be from 1 to 128 Unicode characters in length and can't be prefixed with aws: or rds: . The string can only contain only the set of Unicode letters, digits, white-space, '_', '.', ':', '/', '=', '+', '-', '@' (Java regex: "^([\p{L}\p{Z}\p{N}_.:/=+\-@]*)$").

Value -> (string)

A value is the optional value of the tag. The string value can be from 1 to 256 Unicode characters in length and can't be prefixed with aws: or rds: . The string can only contain only the set of Unicode letters, digits, white-space, '_', '.', ':', '/', '=', '+', '-', '@' (Java regex: "^([\p{L}\p{Z}\p{N}_.:/=+\-@]*)$").

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

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 create an event subscription

The following create-event-subscription example creates a subscription for backup and recovery events for DB instances in the current AWS account. Notifications are sent to an Amazon Simple Notification Service topic, specified by --sns-topic-arn.

aws rds create-event-subscription \
    --subscription-name my-instance-events \
    --source-type db-instance \
    --event-categories '["backup","recovery"]' \
    --sns-topic-arn arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:123456789012:interesting-events

Output:

{
    "EventSubscription": {
        "Status": "creating",
        "CustSubscriptionId": "my-instance-events",
        "SubscriptionCreationTime": "Tue Jul 31 23:22:01 UTC 2018",
        "EventCategoriesList": [
            "backup",
            "recovery"
        ],
        "SnsTopicArn": "arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:123456789012:interesting-events",
