    Hi Claude,

    Basically, you can enable weekly email notifications from Trusted Advisor in the Preferences page of the Trusted Advisor console, as described in this reference:

    In the option that you are referring to, the first part of it makes sense since it uses the AWS Trusted Advisor API for the most up-to-date scan results. The issue lies in the second part where it uses the automated email notification, which is sent on a weekly basis.

    Take note that it is not mandatory to “refresh” the scan results of the Trusted Advisor check. If you are using its API, then you will get the latest data.

    Alternatively, you can use Amazon CloudWatch Events to monitor the status of Trusted Advisor checks. You can then use Amazon CloudWatch to create alarms on Trusted Advisor metrics. These alarms notify you when the status changes for a Trusted Advisor check, such as an updated resource or a service quota that is reached.
