AWS Cloudwatch Logs Exported directly by Logstash/Filebeat?

Hi everyone,

I'm a coop student trying to learn all ELK Stack components. I've been struggling with Logstash input plugin recently. I've spent about two days trying to find a way to directly get cloudwatch logs from AWS, but I haven't found anything yet. The only successful way so far has been reading the logs to a file and then reading the file using Logstash, but not directly from AWS.

Do you guys know if it is possible to directly import cloudwatch logs from AWS to Logstash input plugin? How about through Filebeat?

I have also read a lot of Elastic documentation, but their information are broad, and doesn't cover my specific question. I appreciate any clarification, Thanks!
