AWS Cloudwatch Logs


Is there a good step-by-step, practical, hands-on, how-to, starting at the first step, ending at successful completion guide to do this:

Ingest AWS cloudwatch logs into Enterprise Splunk running on an EC2 instance in the particular AWS environment.

I've read a lot of documents, tried different things, followed a couple of videos, and I'm able to see cloudwatch configuration entries in my main index, but so far have not gotten any cloudwatch logs.

I am not interested in deep architectural understanding.  I just want to start from the very beginning at the true step one, and end at the last step with logs showing up in my main index.

Also, the community "ask a question" page requires an "associated Apps" and I picked one from the available list, but I don't care which app works, I just want to use the one that works.

Thank you very much in advance.
