EvidenceFinderEnablement - AWS Audit Manager


The settings object that specifies whether evidence finder is enabled. This object also describes the related event data store, and the backfill status for populating the event data store with evidence data.



The current status of the evidence data backfill process.

The backfill starts after you enable evidence finder. During this task, Audit Manager populates an event data store with your past two years’ worth of evidence data so that your evidence can be queried.

  • NOT_STARTED means that the backfill hasn’t started yet.

  • IN_PROGRESS means that the backfill is in progress. This can take up to 7 days to complete, depending on the amount of evidence data.

  • COMPLETED means that the backfill is complete. All of your past evidence is now queryable.

Type: String


Required: No


The current status of the evidence finder feature and the related event data store.

  • ENABLE_IN_PROGRESS means that you requested to enable evidence finder. An event data store is currently being created to support evidence finder queries.

  • ENABLED means that an event data store was successfully created and evidence finder is enabled. We recommend that you wait 7 days until the event data store is backfilled with your past two years’ worth of evidence data. You can use evidence finder in the meantime, but not all data might be available until the backfill is complete.

  • DISABLE_IN_PROGRESS means that you requested to disable evidence finder, and your request is pending the deletion of the event data store.

  • DISABLED means that you have permanently disabled evidence finder and the event data store has been deleted. You can't re-enable evidence finder after this point.
