Amazon EventBridge Integration Guide

Amazon EventBridge is a serverless service that uses events to connect application components together, making it easier for developers to build scalable event-driven applications. EventBridge enables you to build event-driven architectures that are loosely coupled and distributed.

What can Zenduty do for Amazon EventBridge users?

With EventBridge's Integration, Zenduty sends new EventBridge alerts to the right team and notifies them based on on-call schedules via email, text messages(SMS), phone calls(Voice), Slack, Microsoft Teams and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Zenduty provides your NOC, SRE and application engineers with detailed context around the EventBridge alert along with playbooks and a complete incident command framework to triage, remediate and resolve incidents with speed.

You can also use Alert Rules to custom route specific EventBridge alerts to specific users, teams or escalation policies, write suppression rules, auto add notes, responders and incident tasks.

  2. Next, go to Services and click on the relevant Service.

  3. Go to Integrations and then Add New Integration. Give it a name and select the application AWS EventBridge from the dropdown menu.

  4. Go to Configure under your integrations and copy the Webhook URL generated.

Via SNS:
