Logentries Provider

The Logentries provider is used to manage Logentries logs and log sets. Logentries provides live log management and analytics. The provider needs to be configured with a Logentries account key before it can be used.

Use the navigation to the left to read about the available resources.

Example Usage

# Configure the Logentries provider
provider "logentries" {
   account_key = "${var.logentries_account_key}"

# Create a log set
resource "logentries_logset" "host_logs" {
   name = "${var.server}-logs"

# Create a log and add it to the log set
resource "logentries_log" "app_log" {
   logset_id = "${logentries_logset.host_logs.id}"
   name = "myapp-log"
   source = "token"

# Add the log token to a cloud-config that can be used by an 
# application to send logs to Logentries
resource "aws_launch_configuration" "app_launch_config" {
  name_prefix = "myapp-"
  image_id = "${var.ami}"
  instance_type = "${var.instance_type}"

  user_data = <<EOF
