Cloud Config allows you to deliver resource change events and service non-compliance events to EventBridge. This way, you can enjoy an all-in-one solution for event consumption and distribution.

Prerequisites

EventBridge is activated. For more information, see Activate EventBridge and grant permissions to a RAM user.

Use a standard account

If you use an ordinary account, you can specify an event bus to receive the resource logs of the current account.

  1. Log on to the Cloud Config console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Settings > Service Settings.
  3. By default, no switch is available in the EventBridge section. After you activate EventBridge, the service is automatically integrated with Cloud Config and you cannot disable the setting.

Use a management account or a member account

If you use a management account or a member account in the resource directory, you can specify an event bus to receive only the resource logs of the current account. The resource logs of member accounts cannot be delivered to the event bus specified by using a management account.

  1. Log on to the Cloud Config console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Settings > Service Settings.
  3. By default, no switch is available in the EventBridge section. After you activate EventBridge, the service is automatically integrated with Cloud Config and you cannot disable the setting.
