Turning off logging for a trail

When you create a trail, logging is turned on automatically. You can turn off logging for a trail. Existing logs are still stored in the trail's Amazon S3 bucket.

To turn off logging for a trail with the CloudTrail console

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the CloudTrail console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudtrail/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Trails, and then choose the name of the trail.

  3. At the top of the trail details page, choose Stop logging to turn off logging for the trail.

  4. When you are prompted to confirm, choose Stop logging. CloudTrail stops logging activity for that trail.
