I want to receive notifications when a specific event occurs for a replication task or replication instance for AWS Database Migration Service (AWS DMS).

Short description

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

  • Configuration change
  • Creation
  • Deletion
  • Failure
  • State change

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.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose Event subscriptions.
  3. Choose Create event subscription.
  4. Enter a Name for your subscription.
  5. Choose the Target and Event source. To use an existing Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic, select a topic. Otherwise, choose Create new email topic or Create new SMS topic. Then, enter the topic name and recipients.
  6. For Event source, select replication-instance or replication-task.
  7. Choose All event categories or Select specific event categories, such as deletion or creation.
  8. Choose All tasks or instances. Or, choose Select specific tasks or instances.
  9. Choose Create event subscription.

If you create the subscription with a new email topic, then you receive a notification to confirm the subscription. Otherwise, you receive an SMS text message or confirmation email. For more information, see Subscribing to AWS DMS event notification using SNS.
