In this blog, we will discuss the AWS personal health dashboard. But before discussing AWS's personal health dashboard, we must know what is AWS? Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world's most comprehensive and widely used cloud platform, with over 200 fully-featured services available from data centers worldwide.

What is AWS Health?

The AWS Health Dashboard is the single place to learn about the availability and operations of AWS services.It gives continuous insight into the performance of the resources and the availability of the AWS services and accounts. Users can utilize AWS Health events to discover how changes to services and resources may influence the AWS-hosted applications. AWS Health delivers relevant and timely information to assist customers in managing ongoing events. AWS Health also assists users in being aware of and preparing for scheduled activities. The service sends alerts and messages when the health of AWS resources changes, giving users near-instant event visibility and recommendations to help users speed up troubleshooting.

AWS Personal Health Dashboard

The Amazon Personal Health Dashboard provides alerts and recommendations when AWS is experiencing events that can impact the user's experience.  The Service Health Dashboard displays the overall state of Amazon Web Services services, the Personal Health Dashboard provides a more customized picture of the performance and availability of the Amazon Web Services services that underpin the AWS resources.

The dashboard displays relevant and timely information to assist users in managing ongoing events and gives proactive notice to assist users in planning scheduled activities. You can use the AWS health dashboard to learn about AWS events. The AWS health dashboard shows information in the following ways:

  1. Your account events
  2. Your organization events

Event Types

There are mainly two types of AWS health events:

  • Public events are service events that aren't tied to a specific account. For example, if there is a problem with Amazon EC2 in an AWS Region, AWS Health will notify you even if you do not utilize services or resources in that Region.
  • Account-specific events are unique to your account or an account inside your business. For example, if an Amazon EC2 instance in a Region that you use experiences a problem, AWS Health offers details on the occurrence and a list of affected Amazon EC2 instances.

Account Events

This page displays events that are specific to your account. You can see open, recent, and upcoming modifications. You may also browse notifications and an event log that displays all occurrences from the previous 90 days.

To access account events in your AWS Health Dashboard, go here.

In the navigation pane, under Your account events, you can pick the following options:

  1. Open and recent issues – View events that have recently opened and closed.
  2. Scheduled changes – View upcoming events that may impact your services and resources.
  3. Other notifications – View all other notifications and ongoing events that have occurred in the last seven days that may impact on your account.
  4. Event log – View all events from the previous 90 days in the event log.

Open and recent issues

  • Use the Open and recent problems page to discover any ongoing events that have occurred in the last seven days that could impact your account.
  • When you choose an event from the dashboard, the Details pane displays, displaying event information and a list of affected resources. See Event details for further information.
  • You can filter the events that display on any tab. You can choose options from the filters list. You may, for example, filter the results based on Availability Zone, Region, event finish time or latest update time, AWS service, and so on.
  • To view all the events, choose the event log tab.


Event log

Use the event logs tab to view all the AWS Health events. Additional columns in the log table allow you to filter by Status and Start time.


Event Details

When you select an event, two tabs regarding the event appear. The Details tab displays the following data:

  • Service
  • Status
  • Region / Availability Zone
  • Whether or not the event is account specific
  • Start and end time
  • Category
  • Number of affected resources
  • Description and a timeline of updates about the event

For example AWS Health event for AWS Lambda,


Organization Events

AWS Health connects with AWS Organizations, allowing you to observe events for all accounts in your organization. This gives you a consolidated view of all events that occur inside your business. These events may be used to keep an eye out for changes in your resources, services, and applications.


Configure Amazon EventBridge

EventBridge may be used to detect and respond to changes in AWS Health events. You can track certain AWS Health events in your account and then set up rules so that you can be informed or take action when they change.

Use EventBridge with AWS Health:

  1. To open AWS Health Dashboard, go here.
  2. To access the EventBridge console and create a rule, use one of the following options: Select Amazon EventBridge from the navigation pane's Health Integrations and after that select go to EventBridge from the Configure EventBridge menu.
  3. Follow these procedures to create rules and monitor the events. See Monitoring AWS Health events with Amazon EventBridge.

Alerts In Dashboard

In the console navigation bar of your AWS Health Dashboard, there is a bell symbol with an alert menu. This feature indicates the number of recent AWS Health events in each category that appear on the dashboard. This bell icon may be found on numerous AWS consoles, including Amazon EC2, Amazon RDS, etc.

Select the bell symbol to discover if current events impacted your account. Then, select an occurrence to go to your AWS Health Dashboard for more details.
