See how to use CloudTrail to log/alert on specific API service calls. Understand how CloudTrail can work in conjunction with CloudWatch.
- [Instructor] The next service is CloudTrail.…People get confused between CloudTrail and CloudWatch,…and let's just take a couple minutes…to explore the difference here.…Very clear, CloudTrail provides a record…of your AWS API calls, so specific APIs on a service.…This is very much for auditing,…so you can audit what your users are doing,…you can troubleshoot operational and security incidents,…and you can demonstrate compliance…with your policies or regulatory standards.…
So, it stores log files in S3,…and you can look up specific API activity,…so they give you an example.…Which IM user made a particular call?…Which API calls failed due to permission issues?…And, most importantly, you can get notified,…so you can send CloudTrail logs to CloudWatch logs,…that's a little bit tricky,…and you can receive notifications.…Remember, CloudWatch is your alerting mechanism by default.…CloudTrail as we'll see allows you to say,…this API call is interesting to me,…log this particular history.…
