Amazon CloudWatch Integrations

  • Notify me in Slack when an Amazon CloudWatch Alarm is triggered

    Make sure the whole team is aware when Amazon CloudWatch alarms are triggered. Use this Zap to notify a Slack channel, instead of keeping email addresses up to date in CloudWatch.

    How It Works

    1. An Amazon CloudWatch alarm changes state
    2. Zapier posts a message to Slack, notifying the whole team

    What You Need

    • Amazon AWS account with at least one CloudWatch alarm
    • Slack account
  • Get an Amazon SNS notification for new Amazon CloudWatch alarms

    Make sure all of your server notifications come into the same place with this integration, which will copy your Amazon CloudWatch alarms over to Amazon SNS. It's a simple way to get your CloudWatch alarms along with the rest of your notifications.

    How It Works

    1. CloudWatch sends a new alarm
    2. Zapier sends that alarm to Amazon SNS

    What You Need

    • Amazon CloudWatch account
    • Amazon SNS account
  • Post new Amazon CloudWatch alarm state changes on Twitter

    Need to keep your Twitter followers up-to-date with your AWS applications, but don't have the bandwidth to post everything yourself? This Zap, once active, will happily take care of everything for you, automatically posting on your Twitter feed whenever an alarm state changes on Amazon CloudWatch.

    How It Works

    1. A new alarm state changes on Amazon CloudWatch
    2. Zapier automatically posts a tweet on Twitter

    What You Need

    • Amazon CloudWatch account
    • Twitter account
  • Trigger a PagerDuty Incident when a CloudWatch Alarm's state changes

    Integrating PagerDuty with CloudWatch can be tricky - use this Zap to simplify the process. Just pick your CloudWatch Alarm, and then your PageryDuty service - and Zapier will do the rest!

    How It Works

    1. A CloudWatch Alarm's state changes to ALARM
    2. Zapier triggers a new incident in PagerDuty for your chosen service

    What You Need

    • Amazon CloudWatch account with at least one alarm
    • PagerDuty account with at least one service
  • Send emergency Pushover notifications when an Amazon CloudWatch alarm state changes

    Sometimes things don't go according to plan. That's why it's great to have a back-up plan in place, such as notifying key respondents whenever Amazon CloudWatch alarms change states. Use Zapier to automatically send out emergency push notifications via Pushover whenever that happens--and those notifications won't disappear until the recipients acknowledge them. That way, you can rest assured that the situation is being taken care of.

    How this Amazon CloudWatch-Pushover integration works

    1. An Amazon CloudWatch alarm changes state
    2. Zapier sends an emergency push notification via Pushover

Amazon CloudWatch Integration Details

Launched on Zapier January 26, 2015

Zapier combines Triggers (like "New Alarm") and Actions (like "Enable Alarm Actions") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.

The following Amazon CloudWatch Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:

Enable Alarm Actions

Enable the actions for a chosen alarm.

Set Alarm State

Temporarily sets the state of a chosen alarm.

Disable Alarm Actions

Disable the actions for a chosen alarm.

New Alarm

Triggers when a new alarm is added.

Alarm State Change

Triggers when the state of an alarm changes (e.g. from "OK" to "ALARM").
