  • To properly call operations, we recommend that you understand endpoints. An endpoint is a URL that allows access to each project in the region of Simple Log Service and the logs in the projects. For more information, see Endpoints.

  • Authentication is required for all API requests. The "Request signatures" topic describes the mechanism and process of request signing. For more information, see Request signatures.

  • You can call operations by using Resource Access Management (RAM) and Security Token Services (STS). If you use a RAM user, you must provide an AccessKey pair for authentication when you call operations. If you call operations by using STS, you must provide a temporary credential and use a special HTTP header. For more information, see Common request headers and Request signatures.

  • You can configure user-specific access control. For more information, see Overview.
