Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) coordinates and manages the delivery or sending of messages to subscribing endpoints or clients. In Amazon SNS, there are two types of clients: publishers and subscribers. These are also referred to as producers and consumers. Publishers communicate asynchronously with subscribers by producing and sending a message to a topic, which is a logical access point and communication channel. Subscribers (i.e., web servers, email addresses, Amazon SQS queues, AWS Lambda functions) consume or receive the message or notification over one of the supported protocols (i.e., Amazon SQS, HTTP/S, email, SMS, Lambda) when they are subscribed to the topic.
To create and subscribe to an SNS topic:
a. In the Topic name field, enter
b. In the Display name field, enter
c. Choose Create topic.
a. Select Email from the Protocol list. b. Enter your email address in the Endpoint field. c. Choose Create subscription.
You can now use this SNS topic to send notifications to your Administrator user.
