AWS Health Tools


The samples provided in AWS Health Tools can help you build automation and customized alerts in response to AWS Health events.

AWS Health provides ongoing visibility into the state of your AWS resources, services, and accounts. The service gives you awareness and remediation guidance for resource performance or availability issues that may affect your applications that run on AWS. AWS Health provides relevant and timely information to help you manage events in progress, as well as be aware of and prepare for planned activities. The service delivers alerts and notifications triggered by changes in the health of AWS resources, so you get near-instant event visibility and guidance to help accelerate troubleshooting.

Disclaimer: The “AWS__OPERATIONAL_ISSUE” Amazon CloudWatch event type codes are for events where AWS is posting details to specific AWS accountIds. General service health events are not posted to this event type code at this time. Instead they are currently posted to the Service Health Dashboard (SHD) and are visible via the Personal Health Dashboard (PHD) in the AWS management console as well as returned via the AWS Health API.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
