Monitoring AWS Route 53

Monitoring your Route 53 DNS records automatically is made easy with ZoneWatcher. After you've added your account credentials, we will automatically import all of your domains and begin monitoring them for changes.

Generating your AWS Access Token

To get started adding your AWS Route 53 account, you'll first want to generate api credentials on AWS's IAM dashboard. We use this token to automatically fetch the domains and associated DNS records.

We recommend you limit access credentials to only the AmazonRoute53ReadOnlyAccess policy. This will ensure that the token can only be used to read your DNS records and not modify them.

Creating your Route 53 Provider
