Amazon CloudWatch Events Integration

Amazon CloudWatch Events helps you to respond to state changes in your AWS resources. When your resources change state they automatically send events into an event stream. You can create rules that match selected events in the stream and route them to targets to take action. You can also use rules to take action on a pre-determined schedule.

What does OpsGenie offer to Amazon CloudWatch Events users?

By using OpsGenie Amazon CloudWatch Events Integration, you can forward Amazon CloudWatch Events notifications to OpsGenie. OpsGenie can determine the right people to notify based on on-call schedules, using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalating alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.
