Amazon SNS + OnPage
OnPage Tech Tips:
Several of our subscribers have been using Amazon SNS with OnPage.
Amazon SNS is a great way to send notifications based on a topic. Utilizing OnPage in tandem with AWS SNS will provide added benefits. Subscribing to important topics with your OnPage email address will provide alerts with redundancy, a full audit trail, and escalation.
You can easily prioritize each topic by specifying if the notification is low or high priority. Such as: ([email protected] for low priority or [email protected] for high priority)
In order to receive the subscription link you must specify the delivery method as “Email – JSON” instead of “Email”. Once the subscription is confirmed the user can start receiving messages from their OnPage address email address.
The following use case is an example of a simple setup using OnPage and Amazon SNS:
An alert is sent to an escalation group that has a schedule configured.
This will be very useful for any team with an on-call rotation and a backup recipient. In this scenario the topic would automatically be assigned to the appropriate group OnPage ID associated with the topic.
OnPage will route the notification to whoever is on-call based on the schedule. If they do not answer in a specified time period it will be sent to the secondary contact.
