SNS Notification Attributes

  • failureDiscoveryDate : the date of failure discovery. A failure can be discovered either when the check was originally created or when a check status was updated from SUCCESS to FAILURE. Example: if a check is created today, "Failure discovery date" is set to today. If a check exists and was successful, but changed to a failure today, "Failure discovery date" is set to today.
  • lastUpdatedDate : the timestamp of the last time Conformity Bot or RTM updated any attribute of the check.
  • lastStatusUpdateDate : the timestamp of the last time Conformity Bot or RTM updated status attribute of the check. For new checks, this field is set to the creation date.
  • lastModifiedBy : AWS Identity of the user that caused an event that RTM picked up and either created a new check in FAILURE status or updated an existing check with SUCCESS to FAILURE.
  • lastModifiedDate: the timestamp of when lastModifiedBy is set.


We currently have a python Slackbot that can alert each user directly. Does Cloud Conformity have a way to send alerts as SQS message so that it can be picked up by our Slackbot?

Yes, follow the steps below:

  1. Set up an Amazon SNS channel
  2. Subscribe to SNS and add SQS endpoint

Can integration be built into Atlassian OpsGenie?

OpsGenie has a native SNS integration. Therefore, notifications created in SNS will automatically be created in OpsGenie through the integration.
