    Hi xiaochris,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    We’ll answer both of your questions here.

    And based on the explanation of the answer, it states “You can retrieve and refresh Trusted Advisor results programmatically” But since if using the lambda function, it looks like I can refresh the results 1 hour instead of the default weekly basis?

    Option 2: Create a Lambda function that executes every hour to refresh AWS Trusted Advisor scan results via API. The automated notification on AWS trusted Advisor will notify you of any changes.

    – This option only refreshes Trusted Advisor every hour. It does not parse the results unlike the other Lambda function on option 1. Also, even if you refresh Trusted Advisor every hour, the automated notification from Trusted Advisor is still sent on a weekly basis. Not every hour.

    From the explanation, it looks like I can manually trigger Trusted Advisor based on how often I trigger the Lambda function, to get the scan results. And when the scan results are refreshed, the notification should automatically be triggered. no? If not, do point me in the right direction..

    Option 1: Create a Lambda function that executes every hour to refresh AWS Trusted Advisor scan results via API. Subscribe to AWS Trusted advisor notification messages to receive the results. (Wrong)

    – Yes, you can create a Lambda function to trigger a refresh on Trusted Advisor, and then scan the refreshed result, and have Lambda send a notification to you.

    – Option 1 says you subscribe to AWS Trusted Advisor, which is incorrect. If you subscribe to Trusted Advisor notification messages, you will only get notifications weekly. If you need notification on a frequent basis, you need to write your own Lambda function and notification setting for that.

    Hope this helps.
