AWS EventBridge metrics

Once you’ve integrated with AWS Cloudwatch, you have access to metrics from AWS EventBridge, which targets such AWS Lambda functions, HTTP invocation endpoints using API destinations, or event buses in other AWS accounts with a stream of real-time data coming from your apps, SaaS applications, and AWS services.

You can create a pre-built dashboard for this integration when you add the integration to Cloud Observability or from the Dashboard list view.

To verify metrics are reporting, search for the metrics in the Metric details section of the Settings page.

The following table shows the EventBridge metrics ingested by Cloud Observability.
