I want to receive notifications for AWS Direct Connect scheduled maintenance or events. How can I do this?

To help you manage events, the AWS Personal Health Dashboard displays relevant information and also provides notifications for activities. You can use the Personal Health Dashboard with the following solution to receive notifications for scheduled maintenance or events that affect Direct Connect.

This solution deploys an AWS CloudFormation stack that sends an automated email notification when an event is posted in the Personal Health Dashboard for Direct Connect.

Set up an email notification.

  1. From the AWS CloudFormation console, choose Create Stack.
  2. In Choose a template, select Specify an Amazon S3 template URL, type https://s3.amazonaws.com/aws-health-tools-assets/cloudformation-templates/DX_Notifier.json, and then choose Next.
  3. In stack name, type a name for the stack, in EmailAddress type the email address to subscribe to the Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic, and then choose Next.
  4. (Optional) Add Tags. For more information, see AWS CloudFormation Resource Tags Type.
  5. Choose Next, select the I acknowledge that AWS CloudFormation might create IAM resources agreement, and then choose Create.

(Optional) Include additional email addresses to receive the SNS notifications.

Note: To add an additional email address for SNS notifications, you must subscribe it to the SNS topic using the following steps:

  1. From the SNS console, in the navigation pane, choose Topics.
  2. Choose DXMaintNotify, Actions, and then choose Subscribe to topic.
  3. In Create subscription, choose Protocol, and then choose Email.
  4. In Endpoint, type the email address, and then choose Create Subscription.

You can download custom notifications for AWS Health events for other services in AWS Health Tools. For more information about Amazon SNS, see What is Amazon Simple Notification Service?
