composer require pagevamp/laravel-cloudwatch-logs


You can use laravel's default \Log class to use this

\Log::info('user logged in', ['id' => 123, 'name' => 'Naren']);


Config for logging is defined at config/logging.php. Add cloudwatch to the channels array

'channels' =>  [
    'cloudwatch' => [
            'driver' => 'custom',
            'name' => env('CLOUDWATCH_LOG_NAME', ''),
            'region' => env('CLOUDWATCH_LOG_REGION', ''),
            'credentials' => [
                'key' => env('CLOUDWATCH_LOG_KEY', ''),
                'secret' => env('CLOUDWATCH_LOG_SECRET', '')
            'stream_name' => env('CLOUDWATCH_LOG_STREAM_NAME', 'laravel_app'),
            'retention' => env('CLOUDWATCH_LOG_RETENTION_DAYS', 14),
            'group_name' => env('CLOUDWATCH_LOG_GROUP_NAME', 'laravel_app'),
            'version' => env('CLOUDWATCH_LOG_VERSION', 'latest'),
            'formatter' => \Monolog\Formatter\JsonFormatter::class,
            'disabled' => env('DISABLE_CLOUDWATCH_LOG', false),
            'via' => \Pagevamp\Logger::class

Add correct values to keys in your .env file. And it should work.

If the role of your AWS EC2 instance has access to Cloudwatch logs, CLOUDWATCH_LOG_KEY and CLOUDWATCH_LOG_SECRET need not be defined in your .env file.

Add To Project

Laravel 5.5 or Higher

This package uses laravel's Package discovery. To disable this package by default you can add DISABLE_CLOUDWATCH_LOG=true to you local .env file and this package will be disabled.

Laravel 5.4 or Lower

Add to the providers array in config/app.php:



This package relies on laravel's listener for log events. This package DOES NOT replace the default logging, instead adds additional log to AWS CLoud Watch. Hence you do not have to change the default log driver to make this work.
