Getting error with cloudwatch input plugin

Can anyone help me

This is a community manned forum, so you need to be patient. It would probably also make it easier to help you if you could provide some additional details and share your configuration as this seems to be what Logstash is complaining about. Just posting an error message does not give anyone a lot to go on.

This is my current conf file and for aws creds using IAM role
input {
cloudwatch_logs {
log_group => [ "/aws/rds/instance/trips3m-prod-read/slowquery" ]
region => us-east-1

output {
elasticsearch {
hosts => [""]
index => "%{[@metadata][indexname]}-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"

What plugin cloudwatch_logs is this that you are using? It does not seem to be the standard cloudwatch one.

You can also not send data to ip in the Elasticsearch output. This need to be the IP of your Elasticsearch instance(s).

This one is using logstash-input-cloudwatch_logs Because i want cloudwatch log group data

It has to be quoted

region => "us-east-1"
