In the Log Service console, you can: Create a project.  Delete a project.

Create a project 

  • Currently, Log Service can only create projects in the console.
  • The project name must be globally unique among all Alibaba Cloud regions.  The message “Project XXX  already exists” is displayed if the project name you entered has already been used by another user. Enter another project name and try again. 
  • To create a project, you must specify the Alibaba Cloud region based on the  source of the logs to be collected and other actual conditions. To collect logs from an Alibaba Cloud Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance, we recommend  that you create the project in the same region as the ECS  instance to speed up log collection, and collect logs by using Alibaba Cloud intranet (without occupying the Internet bandwidth of the ECS instance).
  • The region in which the project resides cannot be changed after the project is created. Log Service currently does not support migrating projects, so proceed with caution when selecting the region in which the project resides.
  • You can create up to 50 projects in all Alibaba Cloud regions.

    Region  You must specify an Alibaba Cloud region for each project. The region cannot be modified after the project is created, and the project cannot be migrated among regions. 

Delete a project 

You can delete a project in some situations, such as disabling Log Service and  deleting all the logs in a project.  Log Service allows you to delete a project in the console. 
Note After a project is deleted, all the log data and configuration information managed by this project are permanently released and are not recoverable.  Therefore, proceed with caution when deleting  a project to avoid data loss.
