See also: AWS API Documentation

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--resource-arn <value>
--event <value>
--topic-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--resource-arn (string)

The ARN of the assessment template that is used during the event for which you want to receive SNS notifications.

--event (string)

The event for which you want to receive SNS notifications.

Possible values:






--topic-arn (string)

The ARN of the SNS topic to which the SNS notifications are sent.

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To subscribe to an event

The following example enables the process of sending Amazon SNS notifications about the ASSESSMENT_RUN_COMPLETED event to the topic with the ARN of arn:aws:sns:us-west-2:123456789012:exampletopic

aws inspector subscribe-to-event \
    --resource-arn arn:aws:inspector:us-west-2:123456789012:target/0-nvgVhaxX/template/0-7sbz2Kz0 \
    --topic-arn arn:aws:sns:us-west-2:123456789012:exampletopic

This command produces no output.
