Options

--name (string)

The name of the event data store.

--advanced-event-selectors (list)

The advanced event selectors to use to select the events for the data store. For more information about how to use advanced event selectors, see Log events by using advanced event selectors in the CloudTrail User Guide.

(structure)

Advanced event selectors let you create fine-grained selectors for the following CloudTrail event record fields. They help you control costs by logging only those events that are important to you. For more information about advanced event selectors, see Logging data events for trails in the CloudTrail User Guide .

  • readOnly
  • eventSource
  • eventName
  • eventCategory
  • resources.type
  • resources.ARN

You cannot apply both event selectors and advanced event selectors to a trail.

Name -> (string)

An optional, descriptive name for an advanced event selector, such as "Log data events for only two S3 buckets".

FieldSelectors -> (list)

Contains all selector statements in an advanced event selector.

(structure)

A single selector statement in an advanced event selector.

Field -> (string)

A field in an event record on which to filter events to be logged. Supported fields include readOnly , eventCategory , eventSource (for management events), eventName , resources.type , and resources.ARN .

  • **readOnly ** - Optional. Can be set to Equals a value of true or false . If you do not add this field, CloudTrail logs both read and write events. A value of true logs only read events. A value of false logs only write events.
  • **eventSource ** - For filtering management events only. This can be set only to NotEquals kms.amazonaws.com .
  • **eventName ** - Can use any operator. You can use it to filter in or filter out any data event logged to CloudTrail, such as PutBucket or GetSnapshotBlock . You can have multiple values for this field, separated by commas.
  • **eventCategory ** - This is required. It must be set to Equals , and the value must be Management or Data .
  • **resources.type ** - This field is required. resources.type can only use the Equals operator, and the value can be one of the following:
    • AWS::S3::Object
    • AWS::Lambda::Function
    • AWS::DynamoDB::Table
    • AWS::S3Outposts::Object
    • AWS::ManagedBlockchain::Node
    • AWS::S3ObjectLambda::AccessPoint
    • AWS::EC2::Snapshot
    • AWS::S3::AccessPoint
    • AWS::DynamoDB::Stream
    • AWS::Glue::Table

You can have only one resources.type field per selector. To log data events on more than one resource type, add another selector.

  • **resources.ARN ** - You can use any operator with resources.ARN , but if you use Equals or NotEquals , the value must exactly match the ARN of a valid resource of the type you've specified in the template as the value of resources.type. For example, if resources.type equals AWS::S3::Object , the ARN must be in one of the following formats. To log all data events for all objects in a specific S3 bucket, use the StartsWith operator, and include only the bucket ARN as the matching value. The trailing slash is intentional; do not exclude it. Replace the text between less than and greater than symbols (<>) with resource-specific information.
    • arn:<partition>:s3:::<bucket_name>/
    • arn:<partition>:s3:::<bucket_name>/<object_path>/

When resources.type equals AWS::S3::AccessPoint , and the operator is set to Equals or NotEquals , the ARN must be in one of the following formats. To log events on all objects in an S3 access point, we recommend that you use only the access point ARN, don’t include the object path, and use the StartsWith or NotStartsWith operators.

  • arn:<partition>:s3:<region>:<account_ID>:accesspoint/<access_point_name>
  • arn:<partition>:s3:<region>:<account_ID>:accesspoint/<access_point_name>/object/<object_path>

When resources.type equals AWS::Lambda::Function , and the operator is set to Equals or NotEquals , the ARN must be in the following format:

  • arn:<partition>:lambda:<region>:<account_ID>:function:<function_name>

When resources.type equals AWS::DynamoDB::Table , and the operator is set to Equals or NotEquals , the ARN must be in the following format:

  • arn:<partition>:dynamodb:<region>:<account_ID>:table/<table_name>

When resources.type equals AWS::S3Outposts::Object , and the operator is set to Equals or NotEquals , the ARN must be in the following format:

  • arn:<partition>:s3-outposts:<region>:<account_ID>:<object_path>

When resources.type equals AWS::ManagedBlockchain::Node , and the operator is set to Equals or NotEquals , the ARN must be in the following format:

  • arn:<partition>:managedblockchain:<region>:<account_ID>:nodes/<node_ID>

When resources.type equals AWS::S3ObjectLambda::AccessPoint , and the operator is set to Equals or NotEquals , the ARN must be in the following format:

  • arn:<partition>:s3-object-lambda:<region>:<account_ID>:accesspoint/<access_point_name>

When resources.type equals AWS::EC2::Snapshot , and the operator is set to Equals or NotEquals , the ARN must be in the following format:

  • arn:<partition>:ec2:<region>::snapshot/<snapshot_ID>

When resources.type equals AWS::DynamoDB::Stream , and the operator is set to Equals or NotEquals , the ARN must be in the following format:

  • arn:<partition>:dynamodb:<region>:<account_ID>:table/<table_name>/stream/<date_time>

When resources.type equals AWS::Glue::Table , and the operator is set to Equals or NotEquals , the ARN must be in the following format:

  • arn:<partition>:glue:<region>:<account_ID>:table/<database_name>/<table_name>

Equals -> (list)

An operator that includes events that match the exact value of the event record field specified as the value of Field . This is the only valid operator that you can use with the readOnly , eventCategory , and resources.type fields.

(string)

StartsWith -> (list)

An operator that includes events that match the first few characters of the event record field specified as the value of Field .

(string)

EndsWith -> (list)

An operator that includes events that match the last few characters of the event record field specified as the value of Field .

(string)

NotEquals -> (list)

An operator that excludes events that match the exact value of the event record field specified as the value of Field .

(string)

NotStartsWith -> (list)

An operator that excludes events that match the first few characters of the event record field specified as the value of Field .

(string)

NotEndsWith -> (list)

--kms-key-id (string)

Specifies the KMS key ID to use to encrypt the events delivered by CloudTrail. The value can be an alias name prefixed by alias/ , a fully specified ARN to an alias, a fully specified ARN to a key, or a globally unique identifier.

Warning

Disabling or deleting the KMS key, or removing CloudTrail permissions on the key, prevents CloudTrail from logging events to the event data store, and prevents users from querying the data in the event data store that was encrypted with the key. After you associate an event data store with a KMS key, the KMS key cannot be removed or changed. Before you disable or delete a KMS key that you are using with an event data store, delete or back up your event data store.

CloudTrail also supports KMS multi-Region keys. For more information about multi-Region keys, see Using multi-Region keys in the Key Management Service Developer Guide .

Examples:

  • alias/MyAliasName
  • arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:123456789012:alias/MyAliasName
  • arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:123456789012:key/12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012
  • 12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
