Viewing an Elastic Beanstalk environment's event stream - AWS Elastic Beanstalk

Viewing an Elastic Beanstalk environment's event stream

You can use the AWS Management Console to access events and notifications associated with your application.

To view events
  1. Open the Elastic Beanstalk console, and in the Regions list, select your AWS Region.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Environments, and then choose the name of your environment from the list.


    If you have many environments, use the search bar to filter the environment list.

  3. In the navigation pane, choose Events.

    Environment events page of the Elastic Beanstalk console

    The Events page shows a list of all events that have been recorded for the environment. You can page through the list choosing < (previous), > (next), or page numbers. You can filter the type of events shown by using the Severity drop-down list.

The EB CLI and AWS CLI both provide commands for retrieving events. If you are managing your environment using the EB CLI, use eb events to print a list of events. This command also has a --follow option that continues to show new events until you press Ctrl+C to stop output.

To pull events using the AWS CLI, use the describe-events command and specify the environment by name or ID:

$ aws elasticbeanstalk describe-events --environment-id e-gbjzqccra3 { "Events": [ { "ApplicationName": "elastic-beanstalk-example", "EnvironmentName": "elasticBeanstalkExa-env", "Severity": "INFO", "RequestId": "a4c7bfd6-2043-11e5-91e2-9114455c358a", "Message": "Environment update completed successfully.", "EventDate": "2015-07-01T22:52:12.639Z" }, ...
