Using the Put EventBridge/CloudWatch Events action

Use the Put EventBridge/CloudWatch Events action to process Jira workflow transitions, Jira Service Management automation rule executions, and Bamboo tasks and notifications with Amazon EventBridge (Amazon CloudWatch Events) to connect application data from your own apps, SaaS, and AWS services:

[...] You can set up routing rules to determine where to send your data to build application architectures that react in real time to all of your data sources. EventBridge makes it easy to build event-driven applications because it takes care of event ingestion and delivery, security, authorization, and error handling for you.
