Using the Publish SNS Message action

Use the Publish SNS Message action to relay Bamboo tasks and notifications, Jira workflow transitions and Jira Service Management automation rule executions via the Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS), a fast, flexible, fully managed push notification service that lets you send individual messages or to fan-out messages to large numbers of recipients:


Amazon SNS makes it simple and cost effective to send push notifications to mobile device users, email recipients or even send messages to other distributed services.

With Amazon SNS, you can send notifications to Apple, Google, Fire OS, and Windows devices, as well as to Android devices in China with Baidu Cloud Push. You can use SNS to send SMS messages to mobile device users worldwide.

Beyond these endpoints, Amazon SNS can also deliver messages to Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS), AWS Lambda functions, or to any HTTP endpoint.


You can use the Publish SNS Message action with the following integrations:


The Publish SNS Message action requires sufficient IAM permissions - an adequate IAM policy similar to the one provisioned by the Automation with AWS (Core) CloudFormation template might look as follows:
