Lists the specified log groups


Lists the specified log groups. You can list all your log groups or filter the results by prefix. The results are ASCII-sorted by log group name.

See for full documentation.


  accountIdentifiers = NULL,
  logGroupNamePrefix = NULL,
  logGroupNamePattern = NULL,
  nextToken = NULL,
  limit = NULL,
  includeLinkedAccounts = NULL



When includeLinkedAccounts is set to True, use this parameter to specify the list of accounts to search. You can specify as many as 20 account IDs in the array.


The prefix to match.

logGroupNamePrefix and logGroupNamePattern are mutually exclusive. Only one of these parameters can be passed.


If you specify a string for this parameter, the operation returns only log groups that have names that match the string based on a case-sensitive substring search. For example, if you specify Foo, log groups named FooBar, aws/Foo, and GroupFoo would match, but foo, F/o/o and Froo would not match.

If you specify logGroupNamePattern in your request, then only arn, creationTime, and logGroupName are included in the response.

logGroupNamePattern and logGroupNamePrefix are mutually exclusive. Only one of these parameters can be passed.


The token for the next set of items to return. (You received this token from a previous call.)


The maximum number of items returned. If you don't specify a value, the default is up to 50 items.


If you are using a monitoring account, set this to True to have the operation return log groups in the accounts listed in accountIdentifiers.

If this parameter is set to true and accountIdentifiers contains a null value, the operation returns all log groups in the monitoring account and all log groups in all source accounts that are linked to the monitoring account. documentation built on Sept. 12, 2023, 1:06 a.m.
