Apica Ascent S3 exporter Lambda function (PUSH)

Creating a Lambda function

Apica Ascent provides a CloudFormation template to create the Apica Ascent S3 exporter Lambda function.
https://logiqcf.s3.amazonaws.com/s3-exporter/cf.yaml
You can also download the CloudFormation template from our client-integrations GitHub repository.
This CloudFormation stack creates a Lambda function and its necessary permissions. You must configure the following attributes.
Parameter
Description
APPNAME
Application name - a readable name for Apica Ascent to partition logs.
CLUSTERID
Cluster ID - a readable name for Apica Ascent to partition logs.
NAMESPACE
Namespace - a readable name for Apica Ascent to partition logs.
LOGIQHOST
IP address or hostname of the Apica Ascent server.
INGESTTOKEN
JWT token to securely ingest logs. Refer here to generate ingest token.

Configuring S3 trigger

Once the CloudFormation stack is created, navigate to the AWS Lambda function (logiq-s3-logs-exporter) and add a S3 trigger.
On the Add trigger page, select S3. Next, select the Bucket you'd like to forward logs from and add a Prefix.
Once this configuration is complete, any new log files in the S3 bucket will be streamed to the Apica Ascent cluster.
