Unable to set aws credentials in v3.2.0

See original GitHub issue
const logger = winston.createLogger({
   transports: [
      new WinstonCloudWatch({
         name: `/my-log/${stage}`,
         logGroupName: `/aws/s3/${repoName}`,
         logStreamName: 'log-stream',
         awsRegion: 'ap-northeast-2',
         awsAccessKeyId: stage === 'prod' ? process.env.PROD_ACCESS_KEY_ID : process.env.DEV_ACCESS_KEY_ID,
         awsSecretKey: stage === 'prod' ? process.env.PROD_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY : process.env.DEV_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY

In winston-cloudwatch v3.1.1 with aws-sdk v2 you could set the awsAccessKeyId, awsSecretKey options. However, in winston-cloudwatch v3.2.0 using aws-sdk v3, even setting the awsAccessKeyId and awsSecretKey options causes the credentials error as shown below.


You’re probably looking at the credentials set in your .aws/credentials file. I want to be able to set the awsAccessKeyId and awsSecretKey in the winston-cloudwatch option, without the .aws/credentials file.

I have been able to circumvent this by specifying the CloudWatchLogsClientConfig directly though awsOptions

new WinstonCloudWatch({
  awsOptions: {
    credentials: {
