CloudWatch logs via HEC on Splunk Light Cloud?

New Member

This article shows how I was hoping to ingest our CloudWatch logs https://www.splunk.com/blog/2017/02/03/how-to-easily-stream-aws-cloudwatch-logs-to-splunk.html

But after installing the AWS into Splunk Light Cloud, the instructions don't match up. Is there a more recent and comprehensible instruction for configuring Splunk Light to consume logs in CloudWatch? I was surprised at how difficult this is, which makes me think I haven't found the right docs yet.

Thanks!
