We're excited to announce that we are now integrated with AWS CloudWatch Logs

It is now possible to ship ElephantSQL logs of dedicated instances to AWS CloudWatch Logs.
You can use AWS CloudWatch Logs to access your ElephantSQL log files.
You can find all ElephantSQL integration options under Integration tab in the control panel for your instances. Cloudwatch Logs integration To submit logs to CloudWatch Logs, you need to create an IAM user with programmatic access and the following permissions: CreateLogGroup, CreateLogStream, DescribeLogGroups, DescribeLogStreams and PutLogEvents. Copy the following JSON and enter it in AWS console when creating IAM user permissions.

{ "Effect": "Allow", "Action": [ "logs:CreateLogGroup", "logs:CreateLogStream", "logs:DescribeLogGroups", "logs:DescribeLogStreams", "logs:PutLogEvents"], "Resource": "*" }

Choose an appropriate region and enter the Amazon Access Key ID and Secret Access Key of your Amazon account and press Enable. When you've completed the steps above, you should be able to see your logs at CloudWatch Logs. Enjoy!
