Starting today, you can leverage AWS Budgets’ integration with the newly released AWS Chatbot service to receive AWS Budgets alerts via Slack and Amazon Chime. To enable AWS Chatbot integration, simply configure an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic during the budget alert creation process. From there, navigate to the AWS Chatbot console and map your Amazon SNS topic to the appropriate Slack channel or Chime room. Once configured, your AWS Budgets alerts will be sent directly to the Slack channel or Chime room of your choice.

Please note that all AWS Budgets functionality can be accessed programmatically via the AWS Budgets API.

To get started using this feature, refer to the AWS Chatbot webpage. To learn about setting budgets, refer to the AWS Budgets webpage or the Receiving Budget Alerts in Amazon Chime and Slack section of the Managing Your Costs With Budgets user guide.
