Configuring an Amazon AWS Route 53 log source by using an S3 bucket with a directory prefix

You can collect AWS Route 53 Resolver query logs from a single account and region in an Amazon S3 bucket. Add a log source on the QRadar® Console so that Amazon AWS Route 53 can communicate with QRadar by using the Amazon AWS S3 REST API protocol with a directory prefix.

Before you begin

If you have log sources in an S3 bucket from multiple regions or you are using multiple accounts, use the Configuring an Amazon AWS Route 53 log source that uses an S3 bucket with an SQS queue procedure.

About this task
