Simple Log Service:ListLogStores

Last Updated:Oct 26, 2023

Queries all Logstores or Logstores that match specified conditions in a specified project.

Usage notes

  • Host consists of a project name and a Log Service endpoint. You must specify a project in Host.
  • An AccessKey pair is created and obtained. For more information, see AccessKey pairs.

    The AccessKey pair of an Alibaba Cloud account has permissions on all API operations. Using these credentials to perform operations in Log Service is a high-risk operation. We recommend that you use a RAM user to call API operations or perform routine O&M. To create a RAM user, log on to the RAM console. Make sure that the RAM user has the management permissions on Log Service resources. For more information, see Create a RAM user and authorize the RAM user to access Log Service.

  • The information that is required to query logs is obtained. The information includes the name of the project to which the logs belong and the region of the project. For more information, see Manage a project.

Authentication resources

The following table describes the authorization information that is required for this operation. You can add the information to the Action element of a RAM policy statement to grant a RAM user or a RAM role the permissions to call this operation.





OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.

Request headers

This operation uses only common request headers and does not have operation-specific request headers. For more information, see Common request parameters.

Request syntax

GET /logstores HTTP/1.1

Request parameters


The name of the project.


The line from which the query starts. Default value: 0.


The number of entries per page. Maximum value: 500. Default value: 500.


The name of the Logstore. Fuzzy match is supported. For example, if you enter test, all Logstores whose name contains test are returned.


The type of the data that you want to query. Valid values:

  • None (default): logs
  • Metrics: metrics

The type of the Logstore. Log Service provides the following types of Logstores: Standard Logstores and Query Logstores. Valid values:

  • standard: Standard Logstore. This type of Logstore supports the log analysis feature and is suitable for scenarios such as real-time monitoring and interactive analysis. You can also use this type of Logstore to build a comprehensive observability system.
  • query: Query Logstore. This type of Logstore supports high-performance queries. The index traffic fee of a Query Logstore is approximately half that of a Standard Logstore. Query Logstores do not support SQL analysis. Query Logstores are suitable for scenarios in which the amount of data is large, the log retention period is long, or log analysis is not required. If logs are stored for weeks or months, the log retention period is considered long.

Response parameters


The name of the server.


The format of the response body.


The length of the response body.


Indicates whether the connection is persistent. Valid values:

  • close: The connection is non-persistent. A new TCP connection is established for each HTTP request.
  • keep-alive: The connection is persistent. After a TCP connection is established, the connection remains open, and no more time or bandwidth is consumed to establish new connections.
