Sending and receiving Amazon EventBridge events between Amazon Regions

You can configure EventBridge to send and receive events between Amazon Regions. You can also allow or deny events from specific Regions, specific rules associated with the event bus, or events from specific sources. For more information, see Introducing cross-Region event routing with Amazon EventBridge

The following Regions are NOT supported destination Regions:

  • China (Ningxia)

The following video covers routing events between Regions using the, Amazon CloudFormation, and Amazon Serverless Application Model:

To create a rule that sends events to a different Amazon Region using the console
  1. Open the Amazon EventBridge console at

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Rules.

  3. Choose Create rule.

  4. Enter a name and description for the rule.

    A rule can't have the same name as another rule in the same Region and on the same event bus.

  5. For Event bus, choose the event bus that you want to associate with this rule. If you want this rule to match events that come from your account, select Amazon default event bus. When an Amazon service in your account emits an event, it always goes to your account’s default event bus.

  6. For Rule type, choose Rule with an event pattern.

  7. Choose Next.

  8. For Event source, choose Amazon services.

  9. (Optional) For Sample events, choose the type of event.

  10. For Event pattern, do one the following:

    • To use a template to create your event pattern, choose Event pattern form and choose the Event source and Event type. If you choose All Events as the event type, all events emitted by this Amazon service will match the rule.

      To customize the template, choose Custom pattern (JSON editor) and make your changes.

    • To use a custom event pattern, choose Custom pattern (JSON editor) and create your event pattern.

  11. Choose Next.

  12. For Target types, choose EventBridge event bus and choose Event bus in another Amazon account or Region.

  13. Enter the ARN of the event bus to use as the target.

  14. For Execution role, to have EventBridge create a new IAM role that has permissions to send events to the specified event bus, choose Create a new role for this specific resource.

  15. (Optional) For Additional settings, do the following:

    1. For Dead-letter queue, choose whether to use a standard Amazon SQS queue as a dead-letter queue. EventBridge sends events that match this rule to the dead-letter queue if they are not successfully delivered to the target. Do one of the following:

      • Choose None to not use a dead-letter queue.

      • Choose Select an Amazon SQS queue in the current Amazon account to use as the dead-letter queue and then select the queue to use from the drop-down list.

      • Choose Select an Amazon SQS queue in an other Amazon account as a dead-letter queue and then enter the ARN of the queue to use. You must attach a resource-based policy to the queue that grants EventBridge permission to send messages to it. For more information, see Granting permissions to the dead-letter queue.

  16. (Optional) Choose Add another target to add another target for this rule.

  17. Choose Next.

  18. (Optional) Enter one or more tags for the rule. For more information, see Amazon EventBridge tags.
