Logstash Cloudwatch Input Plugin

Hi I'm using input cloudwatch plugin for aws cloudwatch ingestion using logstash. I want to reingest the entire data now. How can I achieve that ?

Also, where (path) logstash keeps the registry file to maintain the sequence?

As I understand it the input plugin just harvests the current metrics if they are available (i.e. have not already been consumed). logstash does not track the sequence, AWS does.

It starts sequentially. Let's say cloudwatch group & logs were created and have logs for 1 month. And logstash is configured today, the cloudwatch plugin will harvest the data from the beginning and reach to latest log.

I want to reingest after deleting the datastream/index. It doesn't start from the beginning.
