great !! It worked, Thanks.

The below is the code that creates a Amazon CloudWatch alarm for existing Amplify application.


CloudWatch Alarm for Amplify Errors

    CfnAlarm amplifyErrorAlarm = CfnAlarm.Builder.create(this, "AmplifyErrorAlarm")




            .threshold(1.0)  // Set the appropriate threshold for your case

            .metricName("Requests")  // Replace with the actual metric name

            .namespace("AWS/AmplifyHosting")    // Replace with the actual namespace for Amplify metrics

            .period(300)  // 5 minutes (300 seconds)



            .alarmActions(List.of("ARN-OF-THE-SNS-TOPIC"))  // Replace with your SNS topic ARN




                            .value("abcd123")  // Replace with your Amplify application ID



            .alarmDescription("Amplify Error Alarm")

Hi, when you create an application with Amplify, it sends metrics to CloudWatch. The list of preset metrics is indicated in the Amplify documentation.

You can create CloudWatch alarms programmatically using the CDK, cli or CloudFormation for example. The CDK construct simply needs you to build a metric object that will specify which metric you want to monitor (for example namespace: AWS/AmplifyHosting, name: Requests…) and pass it as a parameter to the Alarm object that you create with the comparison operator, threshold, evaluation period and actions.
