AWS Chatbot is now generally available for all customers. AWS Chatbot is an interactive agent for “ChatOps” that makes it easy to monitor and interact with your AWS resources in your Slack channels and Amazon Chime chat rooms. With AWS Chatbot you can receive alerts, run commands to return diagnostic information, invoke AWS Lambda functions, and create AWS support cases. Previously, AWS Chatbot was in public preview.

To get started with AWS Chatbot, go to the AWS console, perform an authorization with Slack or Amazon Chime, and add AWS Chatbot to your channel or chat room in just a few steps. For additional information on how AWS Chatbot can help improve your team’s collaboration, see today’s post in the AWS News blog. For additional information or to get started using AWS Chatbot, please visit the AWS Chatbot homepage.

There is no additional charge for AWS Chatbot. You pay for only the underlying services that you use, like Amazon Simple Notification Service or AWS Lambda, as if you were using the services without AWS Chatbot. You can use AWS Chatbot in any commercial AWS Region. Please refer to the Regional Product and Services table for details about AWS Chatbot availability.
