AWS SNS component

Overview

The AWS Simple Notification Service (SNS) component allows Connect to publish messages to a specific Amazon SNS topic (a logical access point and communication channel).

Requirements

Environment variables

This component does not require any environment variables.

Credentials

The component requires the following credentials to authenticate with the AWS services:

AWS access key

This is your access key ID when you created the AWS account

AWS access secret

This is your secret access key given to you during the key creation

These keys are displayed only once, just after the creation of the credentials in AWS.

To generate new ones, follow the instructions given at Amazon’s Getting your credentials page.

Triggers

This component has no trigger functions.

This means it will not be accessible to select as a first component during the integration flow design.

Actions

Publish

This action will publish a message to an SNS topic.

There are two required fields in input:

TopicArn

This is the specific topic name.

More about the topic format is below.

AWS region

Set this to the specific Amazon SNS service access point in the required region.

publish

Topic ARN

Amazon SNS assigns a unique Amazon Resource Name (ARN) to each topic.

It includes the service name, the region and the AWS ID of the user, and the topic name.

For example, the ARN for the topic named mysnsrocks created by a user with the AWS account ID 123456789 and hosted in the EU West Region would be:

arn:aws:sns:eu-west-1:123456789:mysnsrocks
