AWS::DevOpsGuru::NotificationChannel - Amazon CloudFormation
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


Adds a notification channel to DevOps Guru. A notification channel is used to notify you about important DevOps Guru events, such as when an insight is generated.

If you use an Amazon SNS topic in another account, you must attach a policy to it that grants DevOps Guru permission to send it notifications. DevOps Guru adds the required policy on your behalf to send notifications using Amazon SNS in your account. DevOps Guru only supports standard SNS topics. For more information, see Permissions for Amazon SNS topics.

If you use an Amazon SNS topic that is encrypted by an Amazon Key Management Service customer-managed key (CMK), then you must add permissions to the CMK. For more information, see Permissions for Amazon KMS–encrypted Amazon SNS topics.


To declare this entity in your Amazon CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:


{ "Type" : "AWS::DevOpsGuru::NotificationChannel", "Properties" : { "Config" : NotificationChannelConfig } }
