The Monitoring section has 15 recommendations for creating specific CloudWatch Logs metric filters that send alarms to an SNS topic when a particular condition is met.

The easiest way to achieve this recommendation is to create a Terraform module that creates CloudWatch Logs metrics filters and CloudWatch Alarms, and then invoke the module once for each recommendation. You’ll need the aws_cloudwatch_log_metric_filter and aws_cloudwatch_metric_alarm Terraform resources.
