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.
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.
Once you've generated your credentials on your AWS dashboard, you can create your new Route 53 provider on ZoneWatcher by giving it a descriptive name, selecting the region your resources are hosted in, and pasting the Access Key and Access Token.
After you've created your Route 53 provider, we will sync all the zones associated with your account and their associated DNS records. You'll be able to view them from either the Provider's page or the Zone Dashboard.
Our AWS Route 53 integration currently monitors the following record types:
