Which web service are you using?
I am using the Apache web server.

Hey use the following steps to log the X-Amzn-Trace_Id header:

1. Open the Apache configuration file ( /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf in Amazon Linux) in your preferred text editor.

2. In the LogFormat section, add the option %{X-Amzn-Trace-Id}i as follows:

LogFormat "%{X-Forwarded-For}i %h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b %D \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\" \"%{X-Amzn-Trace-Id}i\"" combined

3. Restart the Apache service to apply your changes as follows:  

sudo service apache restart
