Creates a Contributor Insights rule. Rules evaluate log events in a CloudWatch Logs log group, enabling you to find contributor data for the log events in that log group. For more information, see Using Contributor Insights to Analyze High-Cardinality Data .

If you create a rule, delete it, and then re-create it with the same name, historical data from the first time the rule was created may or may not be available.
