DeliveryDestination - Amazon CloudWatch Logs
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


This structure contains information about one delivery destination in your account. A delivery destination is an Amazon resource that represents an Amazon service that logs can be sent to. CloudWatch Logs, Amazon S3, are supported as Firehose delivery destinations.

To configure logs delivery between a supported Amazon service and a destination, you must do the following:

  • Create a delivery source, which is a logical object that represents the resource that is actually sending the logs. For more information, see PutDeliverySource.

  • Create a delivery destination, which is a logical object that represents the actual delivery destination.

  • If you are delivering logs cross-account, you must use PutDeliveryDestinationPolicy in the destination account to assign an IAM policy to the destination. This policy allows delivery to that destination.

  • Create a delivery by pairing exactly one delivery source and one delivery destination. For more information, see CreateDelivery.

You can configure a single delivery source to send logs to multiple destinations by creating multiple deliveries. You can also create multiple deliveries to configure multiple delivery sources to send logs to the same delivery destination.
