About this Hands-on Lab

Your company decided to automate its application deployment process with AWS CodePipeline. The management team would like the DevOps team to closely monitor the pipeline by triggering email notifications for any events that occur in the pipeline. In this lab, we will set up CloudWatch events to monitor a CodePipeline. By creating an SNS topic, we can link our CloudWatch event to the SNS topic. Subscribers to the topic will then be notified via email of changes in our CodePipeline.
