You can now respond to Amazon EMR cluster state changes with Amazon CloudWatch Events. The new Amazon EMR event types in Amazon CloudWatch Events provide information including state and related severity for Amazon EMR clusters, instance groups, steps, and Auto Scaling policies. Using simple rules that you can quickly set up, you can match events and route them to Amazon SNS topics, AWS Lambda functions, Amazon SQS queues, streams in Amazon Kinesis Streams, or built-in targets. Additionally, you can view events for a cluster on the Cluster Details page in the Amazon EMR console.

Amazon EMR event types are available for all Amazon EMR releases. You can create rules for Amazon EMR event types in Amazon CloudWatch Events from the Amazon CloudWatch console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), or the AWS SDK with the Amazon CloudWatch Events API. Please visit the Amazon EMR documentation and the Amazon CloudWatch Events documentation for more information.
