Archive settings

You can archive logs to either an Amazon S3 bucket or a Microsoft Azure Storage container.

The Logz.io archiver copies incoming logs to your selected storage container. The data is archived in its “raw” state - pre-indexing and pre-mapping.

To set up archiving in AWS

Before you begin, you’ll need:

  • An AWS S3 bucket with appropriate permissions. The recommended permissions are PutObject, ListBucket, and GetObject. Learn more
Enter your bucket information and S3 credentials

Select an authentication method. You can choose to authenticate with an IAM role or an access key.

For stronger security, we recommend authenticating with an IAM role.

Test your connection and save

Click Test connection to make sure your bucket name and credentials are valid and have the right permissions.

If everything checks out, click Start archiving to save your settings. From now on, Logz.io will archive your logs as they come in. You can stop archiving at any time.

Switching between IAM roles and Access keys

If you need to change your S3 configuration — including switching between access key and IAM role authentication — make the changes in the Settings tab and click Update settings.

You can remove your credentials from Logz.io at any time by clicking Pause archiving and selecting Remove my S3 settings in the confirmation box.

To set up archiving in Microsoft Azure

Before you begin, you’ll need:

  • A Storage container with an App registration with appropriate permissions. Learn more
Enter your container information and credentials

Test your connection and save

Click Test connection to make sure Logz.io can connect to your container and has the right permissions.

If everything checks out, click Start archiving to save your settings. From now on, Logz.io will archive your logs as they come in. You can stop archiving at any time.
