Integrate with AWS to connect all your cloud logs to ClearInsights.

AWS Account and Access Keys

  1. Open the IAM console at

  2. On the navigation menu, choose Users.

  3. Choose your IAM user name (not the check box).

  4. Open the Security credentials tab, and then choose Create access key.

  5. To see the new access key, choose Show. Your credentials resemble the following:


    • Secret access key: wJalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY

  6. To download the key pair, choose Download .csv file. Store the .csv file with keys in a secure location.


  • Keep the keys confidential to protect your AWS account, and never email them. Do not share them outside your organization, even if an inquiry appears to come from AWS or No one who legitimately represents Amazon will ever ask you for your secret key.

  • You can retrieve the secret access key only when you initially create the key pair. Like a password, you can't retrieve it later. If you lose it, you must create a new key pair.

Granting Access To CloudWatch

The user in which you're creating the Access Key for as shown above must also have access to retrieve data from CloudWatch logs.
