Amplify Access Logs Shipper - Lambda

This is an AWS Lambda function that collects Amplify access logs and sends them to Logz.io in bulk over HTTP.

Configuration with a Lambda function

Create a new Lambda function
  1. Open the AWS Lambda Console, and click Create function.

  3. In Name, add the log type to the name of the function.
  4. In Runtime, choose Python 3.9.
  5. Click Create Function.

After a few moments, you’ll see configuration options for your Lambda function. You’ll need this page later on, so keep it open.

Zip the source files

Clone the CloudWatch Logs Shipper - Lambda project from GitHub to your computer, and zip the Python files in the src/ folder as follows:

git clone https://github.com/logzio/logzio_aws_serverless.git \
&& cd logzio_aws_serverless/python3/amplify/ \
&& mkdir -p dist/python3/shipper; cp -r ../shipper/shipper.py dist/python3/shipper \
&& cp src/lambda_function.py dist \
&& cd dist/ \
&& zip logzio-amplify lambda_function.py python3/shipper/*
Upload the zip file and set environment variables
  1. In the Code source section, select Upload from > .zip file.
  2. Click Upload, and choose the zip file you created earlier (logzio-amplify.zip).

  2. If you don’t have a pre-defined schedule type (e.g., 1min), click Create new rule in Rule.
  3. In Rule name, enter a name to uniquely identify your rule.
  4. In Rule description, if required, provide an optional description for your rule.

  5. In Rule type, choose the schedule expression that is equal to the TIMEOUT of the environment variable (e.g., 5 minutes).
Update Permissions for Lambda Function
  1. Go to Configuration in your Lambda function and select the Permissions tab.
  2. Click the role name shown in the example lambda-basic. It will redirect you to the IAM> Roles> lambda-basic.
  3. On the role page inside the Permissions tab, select the dropdown Add permissions and click on Create inline policy. It will redirect you to the Create Policy page.
  4. On the Create Policy page, select the JSON tab.
  5. Fill in JSON with your parameters as follows:
{
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
		{
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
                "amplify:GenerateAccessLogs"
            ],
            "Resource": "arn:aws:amplify:AWS_REGION:XXX66029XXXX:apps/XXXXdn0mprXXXX/accesslogs/*"
        }
	]
}
  • Replace AWS_REGION with the AWS region of your Amplify App (e.g.,us-west-2).
  • Replace XXX66029XXXX with your AWS Account ID.
  • Replace XXXXdn0mprXXXX with the AWS Amplify App ID.
Check Logz.io for your logs

Give your logs some time to get from your system to ours, and then open Kibana.

If you still don’t see your logs, see log shipping troubleshooting.
