DeleteAwsLogSource - Amazon Security Lake


Removes a natively supported AWS service as an Amazon Security Lake source. When you remove the source, Security Lake stops collecting data from that source, and subscribers can no longer consume new data from the source. Subscribers can still consume data that Security Lake collected from the source before disablement.

You can choose any source type in any AWS Region for either accounts that are part of a trusted organization or standalone accounts. At least one of the three dimensions is a mandatory input to this API. However, you can supply any combination of the three dimensions to this API.

By default, a dimension refers to the entire set. This is overridden when you supply any one of the inputs. For instance, when you do not specify members, the API disables all Security Lake member accounts for sources. Similarly, when you do not specify Regions, Security Lake is disabled for all the Regions where Security Lake is available as a service.

When you don't provide a dimension, Security Lake assumes that the missing dimension refers to the entire set. For example, if you don't provide specific accounts, the API applies to the entire set of accounts in your organization.
