To send authorization events to an SQS queue managed in RightScale.
Table of Contents
You can send authentication events through Amazon SNS each time a RightScale user authenticates against the RightScale Dashboard or API. Amazon's Simple Notification Services enables applications, end-users, and devices to instantly send and receive notifications from the cloud. The purpose of this tutorial is to show RightScale account managers how to monitor authentication events of RightScale's Dashboard and API and have those events sent to an SQS queue that is managed in RightScale.
If you would like to monitor your authentication events with an SQS through RightScale, you can follow the steps below.
The AWS Account ID will be listed between the region and name of the Topic ARN:
arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:[Your RightScale Generated AWS Account ID]:authorization-55806
NOTE: An AWS SNS Topic ARN consists of the region the Topic ARN was created in, the AWS Account ID, and the name of the Topic ARN. When Authorization Logging is enabled and saved, RightScale automatically generates this value. The AWS Account ID contained with the Topic ARN has no association with the AWS Account ID associated with your own AWS account. The AWS Account ID associated with your account is listed as Subscriber AWS Account Number.
NOTE: The AWS Account IDs above are blurred out for security purposes.
To test if authorization logging is properly configured, log out of the RightScale Dashboard and log back in. Then check the endpoint that you chose to see if AWS SNS sent a message.
