Viewing an Elastic Beanstalk Environment's Event Stream

You can use the AWS Management Console to access events and notifications associated with your application.

To view events

  1. Navigate to the management page for your environment.

  2. From the navigation menu, click Events.

    The Events page shows you a list of all events that have been recorded for the environment and application version. You can filter on the type of events by using the Severity drop-down list. You can also filter when the events occurred by using the time slider.

The EB CLI and AWS CLI both provide commands for retrieving events. If you are managing your environment using the EB CLI, use eb events to print a list of events. This command also has a --follow option that continues to show new events until you press Ctrl-C to stop output.

To pull events using the AWS CLI, use the describe-events command and specify the environment by name or ID:

$ aws elasticbeanstalk describe-events --environment-id e-gbjzqccra3
{
    "Events": [
        {
            "ApplicationName": "elastic-beanstalk-example",
            "EnvironmentName": "elasticBeanstalkExa-env",
            "Severity": "INFO",
            "RequestId": "a4c7bfd6-2043-11e5-91e2-9114455c358a",
            "Message": "Environment update completed successfully.",
            "EventDate": "2015-07-01T22:52:12.639Z"
        },
...
