aws logs: The specified log group does not exist


I’m trying to grab logs from Cloudwatch with this CLI usage:

But I see this error in the response:

An error occurred (ResourceNotFoundException) when calling the GetLogEvents operation: The specified log group does not exist.


Your problem could be the region.

It turned out it wasn’t for the OP but it might be for you looking at this question!

For example I had to add --region 'us-east-2' to fix a similar problem of log group not found when calling from the CLI
