Table: aws_eventbridge_bus - Query AWS EventBridge Buses using SQL

The AWS EventBridge Bus is a component of AWS EventBridge service, which enables the routing of events between AWS services and applications. It acts as a central hub where these events are filtered and routed to specific targets, based on rules you define. The EventBridge Bus helps in building loosely coupled, distributed applications with nearly real-time event-driven architectures.

Table Usage Guide

The aws_eventbridge_bus table in Steampipe provides you with information about buses within AWS EventBridge. This table allows you, as a DevOps engineer, to query bus-specific details, including the bus name, ARN, policy, and associated metadata. You can utilize this table to gather insights on buses, such as their policies, the events they can handle, and more. The schema outlines the various attributes of the EventBridge bus for you, including the name, ARN, policy, and associated tags.

This table is available as a standalone Exporter CLI. Steampipe exporters are stand-alone binaries that allow you to extract data using Steampipe plugins without a database.

You can download the tarball for your platform from the Releases page, but it is simplest to install them with the script:

/bin/sh -c "$(curl -fsSL" -- aws

You can pass the configuration to the command with the --config argument:

steampipe_export_aws --config '<your_config>' aws_eventbridge_bus
