SNS JSON Message Format Example

Create a AWS SNS notification with Message Format = SNS JSON, for example:

Create a new rule and open the Webhooks tab.

Select [AWS-SNS] test from the Endpoint drop-down.

Enable the OPEN, REPEAT, and CANCEL triggers.

Customize the alert messages using placeholders as necessary, for example:

  • OPEN
     {
        "default": "{\n  \"status\": \"${status}\",\n  \"entity\": \"${entity}\",\n  \"rule\": \"${rule}\",\n  \"tags\": \"${tags}\",\n  \"message\": \"The rule is open (default)\"\n}",
        "http": "{\n  \"status\": \"${status}\",\n  \"entity\": \"${entity}\",\n  \"rule\": \"${rule}\",\n  \"tags\": \"${tags}\",\n  \"message\": \"The rule is open (http)\"\n}"
     }
  • REPEAT
     {
        "default": "{\n  \"status\": \"${status}\",\n  \"entity\": \"${entity}\",\n  \"rule\": \"${rule}\",\n  \"tags\": \"${tags}\",\n  \"repeatCount\": \"${repeat_count}\",\n  \"message\": \"The rule is still open (default)\"\n}",
        "http": "{\n  \"status\": \"${status}\",\n  \"entity\": \"${entity}\",\n  \"rule\": \"${rule}\",\n  \"tags\": \"${tags}\",\n  \"repeatCount\": \"${repeat_count}\",\n  \"message\": \"The rule is still open (http)\"\n}"
     }
  • CANCEL
     {
        "default": "{\n  \"status\": \"${status}\",\n  \"entity\": \"${entity}\",\n  \"rule\": \"${rule}\",\n  \"tags\": \"${tags}\",\n  \"repeatCount\": \"${repeat_count}\",\n  \"message\": \"The rule is cancel (default)\"\n}",
        "http": "{\n  \"status\": \"${status}\",\n  \"entity\": \"${entity}\",\n  \"rule\": \"${rule}\",\n  \"tags\": \"${tags}\",\n  \"repeatCount\": \"${repeat_count}\",\n  \"message\": \"The rule is cancel (http)\"\n}"
     }

  • Click Save to save the rule.

  • The rule creates new windows when new commands are received by the database.

It may take a few seconds for the first commands to arrive and to trigger the notifications. You can open and refresh the Alerts > Open Alerts page to verify that an alert is open for your rule.
