Integrate Opsgenie with Amazon Security Hub

With Amazon Security Hub, you can have a single place that aggregates, organizes, and prioritizes your security alerts, or findings, from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, and Amazon Macie, as well as from AWS Partner solutions.

What does Opsgenie offer Amazon Security Hub users?

Use Opsgenie’s Amazon Security Hub Integration to forward Amazon Security Hub findings to Opsgenie. Opsgenie 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 the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

Amazon Security Hubsends findings which match with the corresponding CloudWatch Event rule to CloudWatch. Selecting SNS topic for target let you publish the related event message for findings to SNS which will send this message to Opsgenie at the end.

Opsgenie also supports sending updates back to Amazon Security Hub when these actions are performed on Opsgenie alerts created by Amazon Security Hub integration :

  • When alert is Acknowledged in Opsgenie update Finding workflow status to Notified in Aws Security Hub.

  • When alert is Closed in Opsgenie update Finding workflow status to Resolved in Aws Security Hub.

  • When a Note is added to alert in Opsgenie add same Note to Finding in Aws Security Hub.

  • When alert Priority updated in Opsgenie update the severity of Finding in Aws Security Hub.
