AWS CloudFormation has expanded the availability of event notifications in Amazon EventBridge to the AWS Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region. You can use these event notifications to build and scale loosely-coupled event-driven applications. You can trigger actions in real-time when CloudFormation stacks or the resources within stacks are created, updated, or deleted without writing single-use custom codes or developing new software.

With this launch, you can use CloudFormation event notifications in Amazon EventBridge for AWS accounts in the Jakarta region. These event notifications include (1) CloudFormation Resource status change, (2) CloudFormation Stack status change, and (3) CloudFormation Drift Detection status change. You can create rules in EventBridge for these event notifications that will immediately trigger for stacks or resources within stacks that are deployed in Jakarta region. For example, you can create an application that automatically remediates drift to CloudFormation stacks which are deployed in Asia Pacific region including Jakarta. We look forward to the creative solutions you build using CloudFormation event notifications.

This feature is generally available in the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio, N. Virginia), US West (N. California, Oregon), Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong, Jakarta, Mumbai, Osaka, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Milan, Paris, Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), and South America (São Paulo). You can get started with a few clicks using the AWS Management Console or AWS CLI commands of EventBridge. To learn more, visit CloudFormation documentation. These events are available for free in EventBridge.
