What does the integration offer?

Use the Amazon Route 53 Health Check Integration to forward Amazon Route 53 Health Check alerts to Jira Service Management. Jira Service Management determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until they are acknowledged or closed.

How does the integration work?

When an alert is created in Amazon Route 53 Health Check, an alert is automatically created in Jira Service Management through the integration.

Set up the integration

Amazon Route 53 is an API-based integration. Setting it up involves the following steps:

  • Add an Amazon Route 53 integration in Jira Service Management

  • Configure the integration in Amazon Route 53

Add an Amazon Route 53 Health Check integration

If you're using the Free or Standard plan in Jira Service Management, you can only add this integration from your team’s operations page. To access the feature through Settings (gear icon) > Products (under JIRA SETTINGS) > OPERATIONS, you need to be on Premium or Enterprise plan.

Adding an integration from your team’s operations page makes your team the owner of the integration. This means Jira Service Management only assigns the alerts received through this integration to your team.

To add an Amazon Route 53 Health Check integration in Jira Service Management, complete the following steps:

  1. Go to your team’s operations page.

  2. On the left navigation panel, select Integrations and then Add integration.

  3. Run a search and select “Amazon Route 53 Health Check”.

  4. On the next screen, enter a name for the integration.

  5. Optional: Select a team in Assignee team if you want a specific team to receive alerts from the integration.

  6. Select Continue.
    The integration is saved at this point.

  7. Expand the Steps to configure the integration section and copy the integration URL, which includes Jira Service Management endpoint and the API key. You will use this URL while configuring the integration in Amazon Route 53 Health Check later.

  8. Select Turn on integration.
    The rules you create for the integration will work only if you turn on the integration.
