Event - Amazon Health
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.

Event

Summary information about an Amazon Health event.

Amazon Health events can be public or account-specific:

  • Public events might be service events that are not specific to an Amazon Web Services account. For example, if there is an issue with an Amazon Web Services Region, Amazon Health provides information about the event, even if you don't use services or resources in that Region.

  • Account-specific events are specific to either your Amazon Web Services account or an account in your organization. For example, if there's an issue with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud in a Region that you use, Amazon Health provides information about the event and the affected resources in the account.

You can determine if an event is public or account-specific by using the eventScopeCode parameter. For more information, see eventScopeCode.
