AWS Chatbot is an interactive agent that makes it easy to set up ChatOps for AWS in your Slack channels or Amazon Chime chatrooms. With AWS Chatbot you can receive alerts, retrieve diagnostic information, configure AWS resources, invoke AWS Lambda functions, and resolve incidents so your team can collaborate and respond to events faster.

Receive notifications

Simply choose the Slack channels or Amazon Chime chatrooms you want to receive notifications in, and then choose the Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) topics that should trigger notifications.

Retrieve diagnostic information and configure AWS resources

AWS Chatbot supports AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) commands for most AWS services from Slack on desktop and mobile devices. Your teams can analyze and respond to events faster by retrieving diagnostic information and configuring AWS resources from chatrooms. You can issue CLI commands from Slack to restart Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances, increase Lambda function concurrency limits, and change Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) auto-scaling limits. You can also initiate workflows by invoking Lambda functions, running AWS Systems Manager Automation runbooks, or creating AWS Support cases. AWS Chatbot commands use the already-familiar AWS CLI syntax. AWS Chatbot also helps you to complete commands by providing syntax cues and prompting for parameters.

Predefined AWS IAM policy templates

AWS Chatbot provides chat channel–specific permission controls through AWS Identity Access Management (IAM). Predefined templates make it easy to select and quickly set up the permissions you want associated with a given channel or chatroom.

Supports Slack and Amazon Chime

You can add AWS Chatbot to your Slack channel or Amazon Chime chatroom with just a few clicks.
