Can you centralize ALB access logs in a multi-account environment?

We have a multi-account environment with each account containing several application load balancers (ALBs) and are looking into a way to centralize logs from all of them? Is that possible?

    Yes, ALB access logs can be sent to an S3 bucket in another account. So you can set up an S3 bucket in a dedicated logging account and forward all ALB logs to it. A couple of things to take into account:

    * You have to use the S3 bucket policy here (including updating the value for the alb account id based on the table provided in the same link): https://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticloadbalancing/latest/application/load-balancer-access-logs.html#access-logging-bucket-permissions
    * The s3 bucket must be in the same region as the ALBs, so if you are using multiple regions, you’ll have to create a separate S3 bucket for each region

    There are other requirements that are also listed in the above link
