AWS SNS component

AWS SNS component

A push messaging service that provides a low-cost infrastructure for the mass delivery of messages.

How works

The component publishes a message to the SNS topic in a specific Amazon SNS service access point.


Environment variables

None required.


The component requires the following credentials to authenticate with the AWS services:

  • AWS Access Key - this is your Access Key ID when you created the AWS account
  • AWS Access Secret - this is your Secret access key given to you during the key creation

These keys are displayed only once, just after the creation of the credentials in AWS. To generate new ones follow the instructions given at Getting Your Credentials page.


This component has no trigger functions. This means it will not be accessible to select as a first component during the integration flow design.



This action will publish a message to an SNS Topic. There are two required fields in input:

  • TopicArn - this is the specific topic name. More about the topic format below.
  • AWS Region - set this to the specific Amazon SNS service access point in the required region.

Publish action

Topic ARN

Amazon SNS assigns a unique ARN (Amazon Resource Name) to the each topic. It includes the service name, the region and the AWS ID of the user and the topic name. For example the ARN for the topic named mysnsrocks created by a user with the AWS account ID 123456789 and hosted in the EU West region would be:


AWS Regions

Here are the regions the component supports:

  • us-east-1 - US East (N. Virginia)
  • us-west-1 - US West (N. California)
  • us-west-2 - US West (Oregon)
  • eu-west-1 - EU (Ireland)
  • eu-central-1 - EU (Frankfurt)
