Tail AWS CloudWatch Logs.


aws-logs tail LOG_GROUP


Here's a couple of examples where LOG_GROUP=/aws/codebuild/demo:

aws-logs tail /aws/codebuild/demo --since 60m
aws-logs tail /aws/codebuild/demo --since "2018-08-08 08:00:00"
aws-logs tail /aws/codebuild/demo --no-follow
aws-logs tail /aws/codebuild/demo --format simple
aws-logs tail /aws/codebuild/demo --filter-pattern Wed
  • By default, the tail command will follow the logs. To not follow use the --no-follow option.
  • The default format is detailed. The detailed format includes the log stream name.
