how to push only error and warning logs to cloudwatch


I am using awslogs to push the logs to cloudwatch log groups, how ever it is pushing everything. Is there a way where i push only error and warning messages from awslogs conf file?

If you don't have large amounts of log data, you may simply continue sending all data and filter it directly in CloudWatchs, for example via Logs Insights. This has the advantage that you don't lose any of your log data (such as Info or Debug messages) and still can query for relevant information at a later point, for example for troubleshooting.

If you want to filter data at the source, you should look at alternative log drivers, for example Firelens. Firelens can also send logs to CloudWatch, but supports more advanced features such as using regular expressions.
