put-subscription-filter

Description

Creates or updates a subscription filter and associates it with the specified log group. Subscription filters allow you to subscribe to a real-time stream of log events ingested through put-log-events and have them delivered to a specific destination. 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 that belongs to a different account, for cross-account delivery.
  • An Amazon Kinesis Firehose delivery stream that belongs to the same account as the subscription filter, for same-account delivery.
  • An AWS Lambda function that belongs to the same account as the subscription filter, for same-account delivery.

There can only be one subscription filter associated with a log group. If you are updating an existing filter, you must specify the correct name in filterName . Otherwise, the call fails because you cannot associate a second filter with a log group.

Options

--log-group-name (string)

The name of the log group.

--filter-name (string)

A name for the subscription filter. If you are updating an existing filter, you must specify the correct name in filterName . Otherwise, the call fails because you cannot associate a second filter with a log group. To find the name of the filter currently associated with a log group, use describe-subscription-filters .

--filter-pattern (string)

A filter pattern for subscribing to a filtered stream of log events.

--destination-arn (string)

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.

--role-arn (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.

Possible values:

  • Random
  • ByLogStream

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
