Control Plane


Control Plane is a hybrid platform that integrates multiple cloud services, such as AWS, GCP, and Azure, providing a unified and flexible environment for developers to build and manage backend applications and services across various public and private clouds.

Deploy this integration to ship all Org logs from your Control Plane account to

Before you begin, you'll need:

Store the secret as an Opaque Secret

  1. Log in to Control Plane Console UI.
  2. Navigate to Secrets.
  3. Create a new secret.
  4. Give the secret a name.
  5. Select Opaque from the Secret Type list.
  6. Paste <<LOG-SHIPPING-TOKEN>> into the content text box. This is the log shipping token of your account.
  7. Click Create.

Enable Control Plane logging

Using the UI Console

  1. Open the Control Plane Console UI.
  2. Click on Org in the left menu.
  3. Click External Logs in the middle context menu.
  4. Select and fill out the required fields.
  5. Select the Opaque secret created to authenticate to
  6. Click Save.

Using the CLI

  1. Prepare the YAML manifest:
kind: org
name: <<ORG_NAME>>
credentials: //secret/<<OPAQUE-SECRET-NAME>>
listenerHost: <<LISTENER-HOST>>

Replace <<ORG_NAME>> with your organization's name.

Replace <<OPAQUE-SECRET-NAME>> with the name of the opaque secret created in the first step of these instructions.

Replace <<LISTENER-HOST>> with the host for your region. For example, if your account is hosted on AWS US East, or if hosted on Azure West Europe. The required port depends whether HTTP or HTTPS is used: HTTP = 8070, HTTPS = 8071.

  1. Save the file, for example, logging-config.yaml.

  2. Open your command line interface (CLI) and navigate to the directory where the logging-config.yaml file is saved.

  3. Execute the following command, replacing ORG_NAME with your organization's name:

cpln org patch ORG_NAME -f logging-config.yaml

Check for your logs

Spin up your Docker containers if you haven't done so already. Give your logs some time to get from your system to ours, and then open Open Search Dashboards.
