Logstash-output-cloudwatchlogs

I am looking to get logs out our network devices, firewalls, aruba controllers, switches etc. I am looking at using the output plugin for cloud watch logs GitHub - amazon-archives/logstash-output-cloudwatchlogs: A logstash plugin that allows to send logs to AWS CloudWatch Logs service.. I am having hard time to get it to install and run properly. Is there another Output plugin to use to send log data not metrics to cloud watch?
