How do I create event subscriptions for AWS DMS?

Last updated: 2019-06-19

I want to receive notifications when AWS Database Migration Service (AWS DMS) replication instances are created or deleted. How do I create event subscriptions for AWS DMS?

Short Description

Use AWS DMS event subscriptions to receive notifications when a specified event occurs for a replication task or replication instance.

For replication tasks, you can create subscriptions for the following events:

  • Configuration changes
  • Creations
  • Deletions
  • Failures
  • State changes

For replication instances, you can create subscriptions for the following events:

  • Configuration change
  • Creation
  • Deletion
  • Failover
  • Failure
  • Low storage
  • Maintenance

Resolution

  1. Open the AWS DMS console, and then choose Event subscriptions.
  2. Choose Create event subscription.
  3. Enter a Name for your subscription.
  4. Choose the Target and Event source. If you already created Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topics, select a topic. If you haven't created a topic, choose Create new email topic or Create new SMS topic. Then, enter the topic name and recipients.
  5. For Event source, select replication-instance or replication-task.
  6. Choose All event categories or Select specific event categories. For example, if you choose failure, you're notified when the task fails, starts, or stops.
  7. Choose All tasks (or instances) or choose Select specific tasks (or instances).
  8. Choose Create event subscription.

After you create the subscription, you receive a notification email that asks you to confirm the subscription by clicking a link. Then, you receive a confirmation email with the topic name, the subscription ID, and a link to unsubscribe. For more information, see Subscribing to AWS DMS Event Notification.
