Coralogix provides integration with AWS Kinesis using Logstash, so you can send your logs from anywhere and parse them according to your needs.


Have Logstash installed, for more information on how to install: Installing Logstash.


You must provide the following four variables when creating a Coralogix logger instance.

Private Key – A unique ID which represents your company, this Id will be sent to your mail once you register to Coralogix.

Application Name – The name of your environment, for example, a company named “SuperData” would probably insert the “SuperData” string parameter or if they want to debug their test environment they might insert the “SuperData– Test”.

SubSystem Name – Your application probably has multiple components, for example: Backend servers, Middleware, Frontend servers etc. in order to help you examine the data you need, inserting the subsystem parameter is vital.

Region - The AWS region for Kinesis.


$ logstash-plugin install logstash-input-kinesis
$ logstash-plugin install logstash-output-coralogix

Open your Logstash configuration file and add AWS Kinesis input and Coralogix.

input {
  kinesis {
    kinesis_stream_name => "XXXXXXXX"
    region => "XX-XXXX-X"
    codec => json

output {
    coralogix {
        config_params => {
            "APP_NAME" => "APP_NAME"
            "SUB_SYSTEM" => "SUB_NAME"
        log_key_name => "message"
        timestamp_key_name => "@timestamp"
        is_json => true


  • kinesis_stream_name is mandatory.

  • region is optional (Default value is "us-east-1").
