A simple way to see your Amazon CloudWatch Logs without closing your IDE :)
File issues, bugs, requests here

Before using the plugin set up credentials at the Settings menu. See the README

!!! This is still a work in progress !!!
The plugin works just fine, if used properly, but without correct credentials it might crash it will be fixed in next release.

Make sure to add .idea/awstail.xml to your VCS ignore file (e.g. .gitignore) since it might contain sensitive data (when using the plugin with custom settings) Features:
  • Tail CloudWatch logs with follow option
  • Filter by group names (comma separated keywords)
  • Since - Until filter
  • Output logs from every stream
  • Searchable output(IntelliJ native)
  • Setup from: Profiles (credentials file), Environment variables or custom
  • Handles Assumed Roles
  • Settings per project (see the CloudWatch Logs relevant to the project you are working on)
  • Fancy DateTimePicker
