Aws Access Key Id (aws_access_key_id)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID

The access key for your AWS account.


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set aws_access_key_id [value]

Aws Secret Access Key (aws_secret_access_key)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY

The secret key for your AWS account.


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set aws_secret_access_key [value]

Aws Session Token (aws_session_token)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_AWS_SESSION_TOKEN

The session key for your AWS account. This is only needed when you are using temporary credentials.


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set aws_session_token [value]

Aws Profile (aws_profile)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_AWS_PROFILE

The AWS credentials profile name to use. The profile must be configured and accessible.


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set aws_profile [value]

Aws Endpoint Url (aws_endpoint_url)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_AWS_ENDPOINT_URL

The complete URL to use for the constructed client.


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set aws_endpoint_url [value]

Aws Region Name (aws_region_name)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_AWS_REGION_NAME

The AWS region name (e.g. us-east-1)


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set aws_region_name [value]

Start Date (start_date)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_START_DATE

The earliest record date to sync


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set start_date [value]

Log Group Name (log_group_name)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_LOG_GROUP_NAME

The log group on which to perform the query.


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set log_group_name [value]

Query (query)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_QUERY

The query string to use. For more information, see CloudWatch Logs Insights Query Syntax.


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set query [value]

Batch Increment S (batch_increment_s)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_BATCH_INCREMENT_S

The size of the time window to query by, default 3,600 seconds (i.e. 1 hour). If the result set for a batch is greater than the max limit of 10,000 records then the tap will query the same window again where >= the most recent record received. This means that the same data is potentially being scanned >1 times but < 2 times, depending on the amount the results set went over the 10k max. For example a batch window with 15k records would scan the 15k once, receiving 10k results, then scan ~5k again to get the rest. The net result is the same data was scanned ~1.5 times for that batch. To avoid this you should set the batch window to avoid exceeding the 10k limit.


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set batch_increment_s [value]

Stream Maps (stream_maps)

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_STREAM_MAPS

  • Environment variable: TAP_CLOUDWATCH_FLATTENING_ENABLED

'True' to enable schema flattening and automatically expand nested properties.


Configure this setting directly using the following Meltano command:

meltano config tap-cloudwatch set flattening_enabled [value]
