  my $res = $obj->Method(
    Arg1 => $val1,
    Arg2 => [ 'V1', 'V2' ],
    # if Arg3 is an object, the HashRef will be used as arguments to the constructor
    # of the arguments type
    Arg3 => { Att1 => 'Val1' },
    # if Arg4 is an array of objects, the HashRefs will be passed as arguments to
    # the constructor of the arguments type

DESCRIPTION

Amazon CloudWatch Events helps you to respond to state changes in your AWS resources. When your resources change state they automatically send events into an event stream. You can create rules that match selected events in the stream and route them to targets to take action. You can also use rules to take action on a pre-determined schedule. For example, you can configure rules to:

  • Automatically invoke an AWS Lambda function to update DNS entries when an event notifies you that Amazon EC2 instance enters the running state.

  • Direct specific API records from CloudTrail to an Amazon Kinesis stream for detailed analysis of potential security or availability risks.

  • Periodically invoke a built-in target to create a snapshot of an Amazon EBS volume.

For more information about Amazon CloudWatch Events features, see the Amazon CloudWatch Developer Guide.

METHODS

DeleteRule(Name => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::DeleteRule

Returns: nothing

  Deletes a rule. You must remove all targets from a rule using
RemoveTargets before you can delete the rule.

Note: When you delete a rule, incoming events might still continue to match to the deleted rule. Please allow a short period of time for changes to take effect.

DescribeRule(Name => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::DescribeRule

Returns: a Paws::CloudWatchEvents::DescribeRuleResponse instance

  Describes the details of the specified rule.

DisableRule(Name => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::DisableRule

Returns: nothing

  Disables a rule. A disabled rule won't match any events, and won't
self-trigger if it has a schedule expression.

Note: When you disable a rule, incoming events might still continue to match to the disabled rule. Please allow a short period of time for changes to take effect.

EnableRule(Name => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::EnableRule

Returns: nothing

  Enables a rule. If the rule does not exist, the operation fails.

Note: When you enable a rule, incoming events might not immediately start matching to a newly enabled rule. Please allow a short period of time for changes to take effect.

ListRuleNamesByTarget(TargetArn => Str, [Limit => Int, NextToken => Str])

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::ListRuleNamesByTarget

Returns: a Paws::CloudWatchEvents::ListRuleNamesByTargetResponse instance

  Lists the names of the rules that the given target is put to. You can
see which of the rules in Amazon CloudWatch Events can invoke a
specific target in your account. If you have more rules in your account
than the given limit, the results will be paginated. In that case, use
the next token returned in the response and repeat ListRulesByTarget
until the NextToken in the response is returned as null.

ListRules([Limit => Int, NamePrefix => Str, NextToken => Str])

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::ListRules

Returns: a Paws::CloudWatchEvents::ListRulesResponse instance

  Lists the Amazon CloudWatch Events rules in your account. You can
either list all the rules or you can provide a prefix to match to the
rule names. If you have more rules in your account than the given
limit, the results will be paginated. In that case, use the next token
returned in the response and repeat ListRules until the NextToken in
the response is returned as null.

ListTargetsByRule(Rule => Str, [Limit => Int, NextToken => Str])

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::ListTargetsByRule

Returns: a Paws::CloudWatchEvents::ListTargetsByRuleResponse instance

  Lists of targets assigned to the rule.

PutEvents(Entries => ArrayRef[Paws::CloudWatchEvents::PutEventsRequestEntry])

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::PutEvents

Returns: a Paws::CloudWatchEvents::PutEventsResponse instance

  Sends custom events to Amazon CloudWatch Events so that they can be
matched to rules.

PutRule(Name => Str, [Description => Str, EventPattern => Str, RoleArn => Str, ScheduleExpression => Str, State => Str])

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::PutRule

Returns: a Paws::CloudWatchEvents::PutRuleResponse instance

  Creates or updates a rule. Rules are enabled by default, or based on
value of the State parameter. You can disable a rule using DisableRule.

Note: When you create or update a rule, incoming events might not immediately start matching to new or updated rules. Please allow a short period of time for changes to take effect.

A rule must contain at least an EventPattern or ScheduleExpression. Rules with EventPatterns are triggered when a matching event is observed. Rules with ScheduleExpressions self-trigger based on the given schedule. A rule can have both an EventPattern and a ScheduleExpression, in which case the rule will trigger on matching events as well as on a schedule.

Note: Most services in AWS treat : or / as the same character in Amazon Resource Names (ARNs). However, CloudWatch Events uses an exact match in event patterns and rules. Be sure to use the correct ARN characters when creating event patterns so that they match the ARN syntax in the event you want to match.

PutTargets(Rule => Str, Targets => ArrayRef[Paws::CloudWatchEvents::Target])

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::PutTargets

Returns: a Paws::CloudWatchEvents::PutTargetsResponse instance

  Adds target(s) to a rule. Targets are the resources that can be invoked
when a rule is triggered. For example, AWS Lambda functions, Amazon
Kinesis streams, and built-in targets. Updates the target(s) if they
are already associated with the role. In other words, if there is
already a target with the given target ID, then the target associated
with that ID is updated.

In order to be able to make API calls against the resources you own, Amazon CloudWatch Events needs the appropriate permissions. For AWS Lambda and Amazon SNS resources, CloudWatch Events relies on resource-based policies. For Amazon Kinesis streams, CloudWatch Events relies on IAM roles. For more information, see Permissions for Sending Events to Targets in the Amazon CloudWatch Developer Guide.

Input and InputPath are mutually-exclusive and optional parameters of a target. When a rule is triggered due to a matched event, if for a target:

  • Neither Input nor InputPath is specified, then the entire event is passed to the target in JSON form.

  • InputPath is specified in the form of JSONPath (e.g. $.detail), then only the part of the event specified in the path is passed to the target (e.g. only the detail part of the event is passed).

  • Input is specified in the form of a valid JSON, then the matched event is overridden with this constant.

Note: When you add targets to a rule, when the associated rule triggers, new or updated targets might not be immediately invoked. Please allow a short period of time for changes to take effect.

RemoveTargets(Ids => ArrayRef[Str|Undef], Rule => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::RemoveTargets

Returns: a Paws::CloudWatchEvents::RemoveTargetsResponse instance

  Removes target(s) from a rule so that when the rule is triggered, those
targets will no longer be invoked.

Note: When you remove a target, when the associated rule triggers, removed targets might still continue to be invoked. Please allow a short period of time for changes to take effect.

TestEventPattern(Event => Str, EventPattern => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::CloudWatchEvents::TestEventPattern

Returns: a Paws::CloudWatchEvents::TestEventPatternResponse instance

  Tests whether an event pattern matches the provided event.

Note: Most services in AWS treat : or / as the same character in Amazon Resource Names (ARNs). However, CloudWatch Events uses an exact match in event patterns and rules. Be sure to use the correct ARN characters when creating event patterns so that they match the ARN syntax in the event you want to match.

PAGINATORS

Paginator methods are helpers that repetively call methods that return partial results
