Activity Logs - Cloudwatch Sync

Last updated on Mar 07, 2022

Cloudwatch logs is an AWS managed service, which helps you to monitor, store and access logs and also run analysis on the logs. You can also use subscriptions to get access to a real-time feed of log events from CloudWatch Logs and have it delivered to other services such as an Amazon Kinesis stream, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose stream, or AWS Lambda for custom processing, analysis, or loading to other systems of your choice.

Read Amazon CloudWatch Logs for more information.

You can push the activity logs corresponding to actions, status-updates, and failures that happen on any Hevo asset such as, Pipelines, Models, and Workflows, to your Cloudwatch logs account. The document explains the prerequisites and steps required to integrate Hevo with Cloudwatch logs.


A valid log group needs to be created, where Hevo pushes the logs. You should also have valid AWS credentials (access and secret keys) of an IAM user who has CreateLogStream, DeleteLogStream and PutLogEvents permissions on the log group created.
