Bug report: Incorrect documentation link in RDS event notifications


RDS event notifications include a URL to documentation in Event ID. Here's a sample Message part of an event notification:

"Message": {
    "Event Source":"db-instance",
    "Event Time":"2022-11-17 18:29:06.384",
    "Identifier Link":"https://console.aws.amazon.com/rds/home?region=eu-north-1#dbinstance:id=mariadb-xyz",
    "Source ID":"mariadb-xyz",
    "Source ARN":"arn:aws:rds:eu-north-1:xxxxxxxxxxxx:db:mariadb-xyz",
    "Event ID":"http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/UserGuide/USER_Events.html#RDS-EVENT-0088",
    "Event Message":"DB instance started"

The Event ID link does not open a documentation page that includes the event descriptions. The link page should point to USER_Events.Messages.html in order for the correct description to be displayed, for example http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/UserGuide/USER_Events.Messages.html#RDS-EVENT-0088 in the above sample message.

Thanks for your feedback, we will pass on this to the documentation team for further improvements. At this moment, https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/UserGuide/USER_Events.Messages.html#RDS-EVENT-0088 takes you to the table "DB instance events" which has the code in the table for you to refer.
