What is an AWS Event bridge??

Event bridge is a fully managed service that takes care of event ingestion and delivery, security, and error handling and required infrastructure management tasks to set up to run a highly scalable serverless event bus.

It is a serverless event bus that connects the application data from your own apps, SaaS, AWS services and routes the data to the target such as AWS Lambda and Amazon SNS.

EventBridge supports 10 SaaS application partners and 90+ AWS Services as event sources.
Please visit the EventBridge partner page for more information.
Event bridge formally calls CloudWatch events and it uses the same CloudWatch event API and you pay what you use. With this, you can also configure the AWS resources as targets of Event bridge. Some example targets are.

  • Amazon EC2 instances
  • Amazon ECS tasks
  • Amazon SNS topics
  • Amazon SQS queues

This service is available in the following regions.

US East (Ohio and N. Virginia), US West (Oregon and N. California), Canada (Central), EU (Stockholm, Paris, Ireland, Frankfurt, and London), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore, and Sydney), and South America (São Paulo).

How does it work?

Key concepts

  1. An event bus receives an event.
  2. When you create a rule, you associate it with a specific event bus, and the rule is matched only by the event received by that event bus.
  3. Your account has only one default event bus, that receives events from AWS services.
