Cloudtrail Not Delivering Logs to CloudWatch

Description

AWS CloudTrail is a web service that records AWS API calls made in a given AWS account. CloudTrail uses Amazon S3 for log file storage and delivery, so log files are stored durably. In addition to capturing CloudTrail logs within a specified S3 bucket for long term analysis, realtime analysis can be performed by configuring CloudTrail to send logs to CloudWatch Logs. For a trail that is enabled in all regions in an account, CloudTrail sends log files from all those regions to a CloudWatch Logs log group. It is recommended that CloudTrail logs be sent to CloudWatch Logs.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    Make sure CloudTrail logs are delivered to CloudWatch on a regular basis
