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).

Configure alarms and notifications

You can optionally configure Amazon Simple Notification Service notifications for detected Amazon CloudWatch alarms and rate-based rule activity. You can use these to receive notification when Shield detects an event on a protected resource or when a rate-limit configured in a rate-based rule is exceeded.

For information about Shield Advanced CloudWatch metrics, see Amazon Shield Advanced metrics. For information about Amazon SNS, see the Amazon Simple Notification Service Developer Guide.

To configure alarms and notifications
  1. Select the Amazon SNS topics that you want notification for. You can use a single Amazon SNS topic for all protected resources and rate-based rules, or you can choose different topics, customized to your organization. For example, you can create an SNS topic for each team that's responsible for incident response for a specific set of resources.

  2. Choose Next. The console wizard advances to the resource protection review page.
