Here we are implementing the aws chatbot slack alert notifications on S3 operations.

Step 1: First create your account on slack and sign in your workspace

And launch it and also create a new channel.

Step 2 : Go to the aws chatbot click on create and in chat client select slack

-> click on configure client

-> it will take you to the  permission access page -> click on allow 

-> after clicking on allow aws chatbot integrate with the slack workspace

-> you can check workspace detail

Step 3 : Now let create new channel so click on configure new channel

-> enter the required details -> configure name -> Logging – select All events

-> channel type – select public -> and select the channel of your slack workspace which you have created in step 1, here you have all channels available whatever is slack workspace.

-> give the permissions  and IAM role -> if you already have then select it. Otherwise let it be create an IAM role Using a template be selected and give role name -> in Policy templates 

-> create topic as standard -> name it and leave the optional

-> click on create topic

-> SNS topic is created 

-> configure the topic 

-> after clicking on configure our chatbot is configured from SNS topic 

Step 4 : Now set the cloudwatch logs, Rules for event and Alarm -> so click on Rules -> create rule

Step 5 : Event Source -> Event pattern -> Build event pattern to match events by service (here do not select all services if you did then it will cost huge so take of it ) -> Service Name : S3 -> Event type : Bucket Level Operation -> Event type : Any Operation


  “source”: [



  “detail-type”: [

    “AWS API Call via CloudTrail”


  “detail”: {

    “eventSource”: [



    “eventName”: [



























Step 6 :  One thing we have to remember while create cloudwatch event rule and alarm it requires CloudTrail logging turned On. So, here you will get the pop up notification

-> let’s move to Cloudtrail and create the trail

Step 7 : Click on create trail

-> Fill the General details  -> in storage location you can select existing bucket also or you can create new bucket also here only

-> in the next step select the enable button in additional settings and select the existing SNS topic -> select the topic which we created – demo-chatbot-topic step-3. 

-> click on create and trail created

Step 8 : Now switch to the cloudwatch page where we left the cloudwatch rule event section and click on create -> Rule created successfully

Step 9 : now it’s time to create alarm -> click  on create alarm 

-> select metric -> next 

-> check the green ticks in storage section, trail section, all ok move next

Step 9 : select the Events 

-> click on By Rule name

-> Select the chatbot-cloudwatch-rule Innovations->

-> follow the steps -> fill the required detail as filled in figure

-> fill the conditions -> threshold type static -> Greater than threshold -> define the threshold value as 0 so that we can get notification alarm at each activity -> click on Next

Step 10 : In the next step we have configure actions -> select Alarm state trigger as In alarm -> Select the existing SNS topic which we created earlier -> click on next

-> in next step add alarm name and description

-> click on next  and at last click on create alarm

-> alarm created successfully ->

-> wait for a minute -> till perform any activity in s3 bucket

-> upload file in bucket ->  check notification in slack workspace here you get an alarm message .
