    Hi Team,

    Have a query regarding cloudfront. I have created the cloudfront distribution and have enable the access logs.
    My query is that "how will I be able to check that logging is working?

    Hi,

    When you enable logging for a distribution, specify the Amazon S3 bucket that you want CloudFront to store log files in. If you're using Amazon S3 as your origin, then it is highly recommendable to not to use the same bucket for your log files; using a separate bucket simplifies maintenance.

    You can store the log files for multiple distributions in the same bucket. When you enable logging, you can specify an optional prefix for the file names, so you can keep track of which log files are associated with which distributions.

    If no users access your content during a given hour, you don't receive any log files for that hour- for audit base, it can be checked.

    Hope the issue is resolved!

    Thank you

    So that means once I enable the log and provide the required bucket name, I would be able to see them under Usage tab present in Cloudfront? Am I right?
