You can use the Syndication Input app (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2646/#/overview) to collect the RSS feed data from the AWS Status
Create a query that fetches the RSS Items that have errors and stores in Splunk indexes under the syndication sourcetype.
Create an alert based on the query, a since field so that we can adjust the alerts over time.
Ask your Splunk team to install the app "Syndication Input" on the environments you need.
After that, just collect each of the RSS feeds needed and add them to the Settings -> Data Input -> Syndication Feed . Take all the URLs from the Amazon Status RSS feeds and use them as Splunk Data Input, filling out the form with certain interval:
When you are finished, the Syndication App has the following:
Use the search for the errors when the occur, adjusting the “since” date so that you can create an alert for the results. I added a day in the past just for display purpose.
since should be some start day you will start monitoring AWS. This helps the query to result in any new event when Amazon publishes new errors captured from the text Informational message: .
The query should not return anything new because the since will not return any date.
Since the token RESOLVED is appended to a new RSS feed item, we exclude them from the alerts.
sourcetype=syndication "Informational message:" NOT "RESOLVED"
| eval since=strptime("2010-08-01", "%Y-%m-%d")
| eval date=strptime(published_parsed, "%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ")
| rex field=summary_detail_base "rss\/(?<aws_object>.*).rss$"
| where date > since
| table aws_object, published_parsed, id, title, summary
| sort -published_parsed
Create an Alert with the Query. For instance, to send an email:
