Any way to do this so we can track when a failover or any other one of those events take place other than using SNS through AWS?

Hey @josh.excell - Thanks for posting your feature idea here. I’m don’t think there is a way to track those failover events in New Relic Alerts yet. I’ve added a poll to your post for others to vote on, and I have submitted a feature request internally for you too.
