DMS events not triggering Event Bridge Rule


I created an event bridge rule which should trigger on any DMS event. Currently the event bridge rule sends the message to SNS which sends an email to my personal email address. within DMS I reboot a DMS instance which produces two events:

dms-instance replication-instance January 24, 2022, 11:45:33 (UTC-05:00) Replication application restarted dms-instance replication-instance January 24, 2022, 11:45:20 (UTC-05:00) Replication application shutdown

however, I don't see these two events triggering my Event Bridge Rule. Not sure if i am doing something wrong.

In Event Bridge rule, the event pattern is: { "source": "aws.dms" }

and the single target is: Name: Default_CloudWatch_Alarms_Topic Type: SNS topic (sends email)

Check if you have Events permission ( in the Access Policy of your SNS topic. Also, enable CloudTrail logging in your account (create a CloudTrail trail for management events).

  • Thanks Joahna. Enabling cloud trail logging allowed the events to come through.
