SNS (Simple Notification Service)

This topic briefly describes how to configure an SNS instance.

To configure an SNS instance:

  1. Create an SNS topic, for example, example-dev-ses-inbox-topic.
  2. Create a Subscription to this topic. The Protocol is Amazon SQS, and the Endpoint is the ARN of your SQS queue, for example arn:aws:sqs:us-east-1:555555555555:example-dev-ses-inbox-queue.
  3. Edit the Policy Document for your SQS queue, and add a stanza such as the following in order to grant the SNS topic permission to send messages to the queue.
  "Sid": "Sid1449524689678",
  "Effect": "Allow",
  "Principal": {
    "AWS": "*"
  "Action": "SQS:SendMessage",
  "Resource": "arn:aws:sqs:us-east-1:555555555555:example-dev-ses-inbox-queue",
  "Condition": {
    "ArnEquals": {
      "aws:SourceArn": "arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:555555555555:example-dev-ses-inbox-topic"
