Authorization Logging tab

With Authorization Logging enabled, 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.


  • Edit - When you edit authentication logging, you can ???enable??? or ???disable??? this feature. By default, this feature is ???disabled.???

  • Status - Specified whether or not the service is enabled or disabled.

  • AWS SNS Topic ARN - The unique ARN (Amazon Resource Name) assigned by AWS after creating an SNS Topic. It consists of the service name, region and AWS ID.(e.g. arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:123456123456:authorization-60210)
  • Subscriber AWS Account Number - The AWS Account Number to which the SNS Topic belongs.
