CloudWatch Logs integration in the AWS Toolkit for JetBrains IDEs (IntelliJ, PyCharm, Rider and WebStorm)  — allows developers to easily view and search for specific error codes or patterns from log streams. The AWS Toolkit for JetBrains is an open source plugin for the integrated development environments (IDEs) from JetBrains. The toolkit makes it easier to create, debug, and deploy Java, Python, JavaScript or .NET applications on Amazon Web Services using JetBrains IDEs. You can get started faster and be more productive with an integrated experience for developing serverless applications, including assistance for getting started, step-through debugging, building, and deploying from the IDE.

AWS Toolkits provides foundational AWS service integrations so developers do not need to leave their IDEs when building AWS applications. The latest release of the toolkit includes integration with CloudWatch Logs. With CloudWatch logs, you can view log streams, navigate to a log stream, convert log to readable formats (JSON, CSV, PlainText or CLF). You can also search for events like "Exception" or "Error", and open up a log stream with various duration options (1 minute, 5 minutes, 10 minutes), to see events that led up to and resulted from the error you were searching.

Install the AWS Toolkit for Intellij, PyCharm, Rider and Webstorm IDEs to start using the new CloudWatch Logs feature from the IDEs of your choice. Share your feedback, feature requests, and issues on the AWS toolkit extension on GitHub. Check out the AWS Toolkit User Guide.
