Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) is a fast, scalable, highly available, and fully managed document database service that supports MongoDB workloads. As a document database, Amazon DocumentDB makes it easy to store, query, and index JSON data at scale.

Using Event Subscriptions, you can now sign up to receive notifications for management events that occur on your Amazon DocumentDB clusters, instances, cluster snapshots and parameter groups. Whenever events occur, Amazon DocumentDB leverages Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) to notify the subscriber through supported methods such as an email, a text message, or a call to an HTTP endpoint. With Event Subscriptions you can be notified automatically of events such as the completion of patching, an instance failover, or a parameter group modification. For example, you can use Lambda to process the events of a database instance. Developers can subscribe to over 50 types of events using the Management Console or the CLI.

Event Subscriptions for Amazon DocumentDB are supported in regions where Amazon DocumentDB is available. Amazon SNS charges apply when using Event Subscriptions with Amazon DocumentDB.
