How do I create an Amazon RDS event subscription?

1 minute read

I want to be notified when there's an event (for example, creation, failure, or low storage) on my Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) resources.


To subscribe to Amazon RDS event notifications, see Subscribing to Amazon RDS event notification. For a list of event categories and messages that you can subscribe to, see Amazon RDS event categories and event messages.

When an event subscription status becomes active, it's a best practice to test your event subscription. To test your subscription, initiate one action in the Amazon RDS resources that you specify in the subscription that triggers the event. For example, you can test a subscription with a Multi-AZ failover or a reboot. If your subscription works as expected, then you receive a notification message about the event.
