The CDK Construct Library for AWS::SES

Project description

Amazon Simple Email Service Construct Library


cfn-resources: Stable

All classes with the Cfn prefix in this module (CFN Resources) are always stable and safe to use.

cdk-constructs: Experimental

The APIs of higher level constructs in this module are experimental and under active development. They are subject to non-backward compatible changes or removal in any future version. These are not subject to the Semantic Versioning model and breaking changes will be announced in the release notes. This means that while you may use them, you may need to update your source code when upgrading to a newer version of this package.

This module is part of the AWS Cloud Development Kit project.

Email receiving

Create a receipt rule set with rules and actions (actions can be found in the @aws-cdk/aws-ses-actions package):

# Example automatically generated without compilation. See
import aws_cdk.aws_s3 as s3
import aws_cdk.aws_ses as ses
import aws_cdk.aws_ses_actions as actions
import aws_cdk.aws_sns as sns

bucket = s3.Bucket(stack, "Bucket")
topic = sns.Topic(stack, "Topic")

ses.ReceiptRuleSet(stack, "RuleSet",
    ), ReceiptRuleOptions(

Alternatively, rules can be added to a rule set:

# Example automatically generated without compilation. See
rule_set = ses.ReceiptRuleSet(self, "RuleSet")

aws_rule = rule_set.add_rule("Aws",

And actions to rules:

# Example automatically generated without compilation. See

When using addRule, the new rule is added after the last added rule unless after is specified.

Drop spams

A rule to drop spam can be added by setting dropSpam to true:

# Example automatically generated without compilation. See
ses.ReceiptRuleSet(self, "RuleSet",

This will add a rule at the top of the rule set with a Lambda action that stops processing messages that have at least one spam indicator. See Lambda Function Examples.

Receipt filter

Create a receipt filter:

# Example automatically generated without compilation. See
ses.ReceiptFilter(self, "Filter",

A white list filter is also available:

# Example automatically generated without compilation. See
ses.WhiteListReceiptFilter(self, "WhiteList",
    ips=["", ""

This will first create a block all filter and then create allow filters for the listed ip addresses.
