Be notified of scan results through AWS SNS

You can configure the AWS Simple Notification Service (SNS) to notify you when a scan occurs. The notification can be an email, text message, or another type of notification that you define in SNS. The procedure below describes how to set up email notifications.

  1. In AWS, go to the Simple Notification Service.
  2. On the left, select Topics.
  3. In the main pane, enter ScanResultTopic and select File Storage Security's SNS ScanResultTopic.
  4. Select Create subscription.
  5. Leave the Topic ARN field as-is. It is populated with the ARN of the ScanResultTopic.
  6. From the Protocol drop-down list, select Email.
  7. In the Endpoint field, enter an email address that will be notified when a scan occurs.
  8. Select Create subscription.
  9. Test that the email notification works as follows:
    1. Add a file to the S3 bucket to scan. For instructions, see Scan a file.
    2. Verify that an email was sent.

If you don't want to set up notifications with email, you can instead create a Lambda function to notify you when scans occur.

For details of the scan result format in ScanResultTopic, see scan result format.
