Release: Amazon Simple Notification Service on 2011-12-28
Amazon Simple Notification Service adds support for HTTP/HTTPS delivery policies and message formatting.
|Support for HTTP/HTTPS Delivery Policies
||Amazon Simple Notification Service now supports HTTP/HTTPS delivery policies. If an initial HTTP/HTTPS notification attempt doesn't result in a successful response from the subscribed endpoint, Amazon SNS will retry up to 100 times based on your delivery policy settings. You can use delivery policies to control the total number of retries and the time delay between each retry. For more information, go to Amazon SNS HTTP/HTTPS Delivery Policies in the Amazon Simple Queue Service Getting Started Guide.
|Support for Message Formatting
||With new message formatting support, Amazon SNS notification content can be optimized to provide richness that is suitable for each delivery protocol used. For example, a notification that goes to both email and SMS subscribers can be tailored to each type of client. SMS users can receive a version of the message formatted for the available 140 characters supported by the SMS standard, while email users can receive a longer, more detailed version of the same content. For more information, go to Create Different Messages for Each Protocol in the Amazon Simple Queue Service Getting Started Guide.
