Monitor snapshot archiving

Amazon EBS emits events related to snapshot archiving actions. You can use Amazon Lambda and Amazon CloudWatch Events to handle event notifications programmatically. Events are emitted on a best effort basis. For more information, see the Amazon CloudWatch Events User Guide.

The following events are available:

  • archiveSnapshot — Emitted when a snapshot archive action succeeds or fails.

    The following is an example of an event that is emitted when a snapshot archive action succeeds.

    { "version": "0", "id": "01234567-0123-0123-0123-012345678901", "detail-type": "EBS Snapshot Notification", "source": "aws.ec2", "account": "123456789012", "time": "2021-05-25T13:12:22Z", "region": "us-east-1", "resources": [ "arn:aws:ec2:us-east-1::snapshot/snap-01234567890abcdef" ], "detail": { "event": "archiveSnapshot", "result": "succeeded", "cause": "", "request-id": "123456789", "snapshot_id": "arn:aws:ec2:us-east-1::snapshot/snap-01234567890abcdef", "startTime": "2021-05-25T13:12:22Z", "endTime": "2021-05-45T15:30:00Z", "recycleBinExitTime": "2021-10-45T15:30:00Z" }
