Metric beat unable to detect all metricset from cloudwatch

I want to detect AWS/SES metric set from cloud watch or basically monitor SES metrics via elastic. I tried to configure "*" namespace but still, it doesn't query all of the namespaces.

I am have tested with 7.5.1 and 7.6.2 as well.

Hi @Abhishek_Tanwar, thanks for reporting your issue here. Could you share your config file here please? Thanks! I will try to reproduce it on my side too.

Could you also verify around the timestamp of you have Metricbeat running, there are metrics in CloudWatch under AWS/SES namespace please? Thanks!

I assume you are using the shared credential file ~/.aws/credentials default profile name for authentication then? If that's the case, the config looks right!

While running Metricbeat, do you see any metrics under AWS/SES namespace inside CloudWatch portal?

Yes I can see metrics in cloud watch. There are 4 metrics as standard in AWS/SES.

Hmm I still can't reproduce it. Here is what I see in CloudWatch:

and when I start Metricbeat with aws.yml config:

- module: aws
  period: 5m
  credential_profile_name: elastic-beats
    - cloudwatch
    - namespace: AWS/SES

I got an event:

      "cloudwatch": {
        "namespace": "AWS/SES"
  "fields": {

Based on the timestamp, there is a delay. Is that might be the issue for you? Or are you seeing any error message from Metricbeat log?
