PutDeliverySource - Amazon CloudWatch Logs


Creates or updates a logical delivery source. A delivery source represents an AWS resource that sends logs to an logs delivery destination. The destination can be CloudWatch Logs, Amazon S3, or Firehose.

To configure logs delivery between a delivery destination and an AWS service that is supported as a delivery source, you must do the following:

  • Use PutDeliverySource to create a delivery source, which is a logical object that represents the resource that is actually sending the logs.

  • Use PutDeliveryDestination to create a delivery destination, which is a logical object that represents the actual delivery destination. For more information, see PutDeliveryDestination.

  • If you are delivering logs cross-account, you must use PutDeliveryDestinationPolicy in the destination account to assign an IAM policy to the destination. This policy allows delivery to that destination.

  • Use CreateDelivery to create a delivery by pairing exactly one delivery source and one delivery destination. For more information, see CreateDelivery.

You can configure a single delivery source to send logs to multiple destinations by creating multiple deliveries. You can also create multiple deliveries to configure multiple delivery sources to send logs to the same delivery destination.

Only some AWS services support being configured as a delivery source. These services are listed as Supported [V2 Permissions] in the table at Enabling logging from AWS services.

If you use this operation to update an existing delivery source, all the current delivery source parameters are overwritten with the new parameter values that you specify.
