Configure AWS services
Before configuring you Splunk platform deployment to work with your AWS data, make sure that your AWS deployment is properly configured to send data.
- You must have administrator access to your AWS account. If you do not have necessary permissions, work with an AWS administrator to complete the tasks described in this manual.
If your account is in the AWS China region, the add-on only supports the services that AWS supports in that region. For an up-to-date list of what products and services are supported in this region, see AWS China Products or AWS product services.
If your account is in the AWS GovCloud region, the add-on only supports the services that AWS supports in that region. For an up-to-date list of what services and endpoints are supported in this region, see the AWS GovCloud User Guide
To collect access logs, configure logging in the AWS console to collect the logs in a dedicated S3 bucket. See the AWS documentation for more information on how to configure access logs:
- Enable S3 access logs: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/ServerLogs.html
- Enable ELB access logs: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/ElasticLoadBalancing/latest/DeveloperGuide/enable-access-logs.html
- Enable CloudFront access logs: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/AccessLogs.html
Refer to the AWS S3 documentation for more information about how to configure S3 buckets and objects: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/gettingstarted/latest/swh/getting-started-create-bucket.html
