Step 1: Create a topic in Amazon SNS

The first part of setting up a CloudWatch Events rule is preparing the rule target. In this case, that means creating and subscribing to an Amazon SNS topic.

                        The CloudWatch Events rule is represented by a rectangle that reads "Rule: Send
                            me an email when one of my jobs has an error." Inside that rectangle are
                            two rectangles, one representing the target and one representing the
                            event source. In this image, the target rectangle is highlighted. It
                            reads "Target, Amazon SNS Topic: Use my SNS topic that sends an email to the
                            address I provide."
