Client

class CloudWatchLogs.Client

A low-level client representing Amazon CloudWatch Logs:

client = session.create_client('logs')

These are the available methods:

associate_kms_key(**kwargs)

Associates the specified AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) customer master key (CMK) with the specified log group.

Associating an AWS KMS CMK with a log group overrides any existing associations between the log group and a CMK. After a CMK is associated with a log group, all newly ingested data for the log group is encrypted using the CMK. This association is stored as long as the data encrypted with the CMK is still within Amazon CloudWatch Logs. This enables Amazon CloudWatch Logs to decrypt this data whenever it is requested.

Note that it can take up to 5 minutes for this operation to take effect.

If you attempt to associate a CMK with a log group but the CMK does not exist or the CMK is disabled, you will receive an InvalidParameterException error.

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.associate_kms_key(
    logGroupName='string',
    kmsKeyId='string'
)
Parameters
Returns

None

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
cancel_export_task(**kwargs)

Cancels the specified export task.

The task must be in the PENDING or RUNNING state.

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.cancel_export_task(
    taskId='string'
)
Parameters
taskId (string) --

[REQUIRED]

The ID of the export task.

Returns
None
create_export_task(**kwargs)

Creates an export task, which allows you to efficiently export data from a log group to an Amazon S3 bucket.

This is an asynchronous call. If all the required information is provided, this operation initiates an export task and responds with the ID of the task. After the task has started, you can use DescribeExportTasks to get the status of the export task. Each account can only have one active (RUNNING or PENDING ) export task at a time. To cancel an export task, use CancelExportTask .

You can export logs from multiple log groups or multiple time ranges to the same S3 bucket. To separate out log data for each export task, you can specify a prefix to be used as the Amazon S3 key prefix for all exported objects.

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.create_export_task(
    taskName='string',
    logGroupName='string',
    logStreamNamePrefix='string',
    fromTime=123,
    to=123,
    destination='string',
    destinationPrefix='string'
)
Parameters
  • taskName (string) -- The name of the export task.
  • logGroupName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the log group.

  • logStreamNamePrefix (string) -- Export only log streams that match the provided prefix. If you don't specify a value, no prefix filter is applied.
  • fromTime (integer) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The start time of the range for the request, expressed as the number of milliseconds after Jan 1, 1970 00:00:00 UTC. Events with a time stamp earlier than this time are not exported.

  • to (integer) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The end time of the range for the request, expressed as the number of milliseconds after Jan 1, 1970 00:00:00 UTC. Events with a time stamp later than this time are not exported.

  • destination (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of S3 bucket for the exported log data. The bucket must be in the same AWS region.

  • destinationPrefix (string) -- The prefix used as the start of the key for every object exported. If you don't specify a value, the default is exportedlogs .

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • taskId (string) --

      The ID of the export task.

create_log_group(**kwargs)

Creates a log group with the specified name.

You can create up to 5000 log groups per account.

You must use the following guidelines when naming a log group:

  • Log group names must be unique within a region for an AWS account.
  • Log group names can be between 1 and 512 characters long.
  • Log group names consist of the following characters: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, '_' (underscore), '-' (hyphen), '/' (forward slash), and '.' (period).

If you associate a AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) customer master key (CMK) with the log group, ingested data is encrypted using the CMK. This association is stored as long as the data encrypted with the CMK is still within Amazon CloudWatch Logs. This enables Amazon CloudWatch Logs to decrypt this data whenever it is requested.

If you attempt to associate a CMK with the log group but the CMK does not exist or the CMK is disabled, you will receive an InvalidParameterException error.

put_destination(**kwargs)

Creates or updates a destination. A destination encapsulates a physical resource (such as an Amazon Kinesis stream) and enables you to subscribe to a real-time stream of log events for a different account, ingested using PutLogEvents . Currently, the only supported physical resource is a Kinesis stream belonging to the same account as the destination.

Through an access policy, a destination controls what is written to its Kinesis stream. By default, PutDestination does not set any access policy with the destination, which means a cross-account user cannot call PutSubscriptionFilter against this destination. To enable this, the destination owner must call PutDestinationPolicy after PutDestination .

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.put_destination(
    destinationName='string',
    targetArn='string',
    roleArn='string'
)
Parameters
  • destinationName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

put_log_events(**kwargs)

Uploads a batch of log events to the specified log stream.

You must include the sequence token obtained from the response of the previous call. An upload in a newly created log stream does not require a sequence token. You can also get the sequence token using DescribeLogStreams . If you call PutLogEvents twice within a narrow time period using the same value for sequenceToken , both calls may be successful, or one may be rejected.

The batch of events must satisfy the following constraints:

  • The maximum batch size is 1,048,576 bytes, and this size is calculated as the sum of all event messages in UTF-8, plus 26 bytes for each log event.
  • None of the log events in the batch can be more than 2 hours in the future.
  • None of the log events in the batch can be older than 14 days or the retention period of the log group.
  • The log events in the batch must be in chronological ordered by their time stamp (the time the event occurred, expressed as the number of milliseconds after Jan 1, 1970 00:00:00 UTC).
  • The maximum number of log events in a batch is 10,000.
  • A batch of log events in a single request cannot span more than 24 hours. Otherwise, the operation fails.

    The ARN of the destination to deliver matching log events to. Currently, the supported destinations are:

    • An Amazon Kinesis stream belonging to the same account as the subscription filter, for same-account delivery.
    • A logical destination (specified using an ARN) belonging to a different account, for cross-account delivery.
    • An Amazon Kinesis Firehose delivery stream belonging to the same account as the subscription filter, for same-account delivery.
    • An AWS Lambda function belonging to the same account as the subscription filter, for same-account delivery.
  • roleArn (string) -- The ARN of an IAM role that grants CloudWatch Logs permissions to deliver ingested log events to the destination stream. You don't need to provide the ARN when you are working with a logical destination for cross-account delivery.
  • distribution (string) -- The method used to distribute log data to the destination. By default log data is grouped by log stream, but the grouping can be set to random for a more even distribution. This property is only applicable when the destination is an Amazon Kinesis stream.
