AWS CloudWatch

You can install the AWS CloudWatch integration to collect event and alarm data from AWS CloudWatch.

When you use the integrations UI, you can only configure the visible properties. If you want to implement a more complex AWS CloudWatch LAM with custom settings, see AWS CloudWatch LAM Reference.

See the AWS CloudWatch documentation for details on AWS CloudWatch components.

Before you begin

The AWS CloudWatch integration has been validated with aws-java-sdk v1.11. Before you start to set up your integration, ensure you have met the following requirements:

  • You have the access key ID and secret access key for your AWS CloudWatch account.

  • You have access to retrieve data from AWS CloudWatch.

Additionally, you can provide optional configuration details. See the LAM and Integration Reference for a description of all properties.

Configure the AWS CloudWatch integration

To configure the AWS CloudWatch integration:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.

  2. Click AWS CloudWatch in the Monitoring section.

  3. Provide a unique integration name. You can use the default name or customize the name according to your needs.

  4. Provide connection details for your AWS CloudWatch system.

Configure AWS CloudWatch

You do not need to perform any integration-specific steps on your AWS CloudWatch system. After you configure the integration, it polls AWS CloudWatch at regular intervals to collect event and alarm data (every 60 seconds by default).
