AWS SDK for Go (PILOT)
API Reference

PREVIEW DOCUMENTATION - This is a preview of a new format for the AWS SDK for Go API Reference documentation. For the current AWS SDK for Go API Reference, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/.

EventSelector

import "github.com/aws/aws-sdk-go/service/cloudtrail"

type EventSelector struct { DataResources []*DataResource `type:"list"` IncludeManagementEvents *bool `type:"boolean"` ReadWriteType *string `type:"string" enum:"ReadWriteType"` }

Use event selectors to further specify the management and data event settings for your trail. By default, trails created without specific event selectors will be configured to log all read and write management events, and no data events. When an event occurs in your account, CloudTrail evaluates the event selector for all trails. For each trail, if the event matches any event selector, the trail processes and logs the event. If the event doesn't match any event selector, the trail doesn't log the event.

You can configure up to five event selectors for a trail.

DataResources

The Amazon S3 buckets or AWS Lambda functions that you specify in your event selectors for your trail to log data events. Data events provide insight into the resource operations performed on or within a resource itself. These are also known as data plane operations. You can specify up to 250 data resources for a trail.

The total number of allowed data resources is 250. This number can be distributed between 1 and 5 event selectors, but the total cannot exceed 250 across all selectors.

The following example demonstrates how logging works when you configure logging of all data events for an S3 bucket named bucket-1. In this example, the CloudTrail user spcified an empty prefix, and the option to log both Read and Write data events.

A user uploads an image file to bucket-1.

The PutObject API operation is an Amazon S3 object-level API. It is recorded as a data event in CloudTrail. Because the CloudTrail user specified an S3 bucket with an empty prefix, events that occur on any object in that bucket are logged. The trail processes and logs the event.

A user uploads an object to an Amazon S3 bucket named arn:aws:s3:::bucket-2.

The PutObject API operation occurred for an object in an S3 bucket that the CloudTrail user didn't specify for the trail. The trail doesn’t log the event.

The following example demonstrates how logging works when you configure logging of AWS Lambda data events for a Lambda function named MyLambdaFunction, but not for all AWS Lambda functions.

A user runs a script that includes a call to the MyLambdaFunction function and the MyOtherLambdaFunction function.

The Invoke API operation on MyLambdaFunction is an AWS Lambda API. It is recorded as a data event in CloudTrail. Because the CloudTrail user specified logging data events for MyLambdaFunction, any invocations of that function are logged. The trail processes and logs the event.

The Invoke API operation on MyOtherLambdaFunction is an AWS Lambda API. Because the CloudTrail user did not specify logging data events for all Lambda functions, the Invoke operation for MyOtherLambdaFunction does not match the function specified for the trail. The trail doesn’t log the event.

IncludeManagementEvents

Type: *bool

Specify if you want your event selector to include management events for your trail.

For more information, see Management Events (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/awscloudtrail/latest/userguide/logging-management-and-data-events-with-cloudtrail.html#logging-management-events) in the AWS CloudTrail User Guide.

By default, the value is true.

ReadWriteType

Type: *string

Specify if you want your trail to log read-only events, write-only events, or all. For example, the EC2 GetConsoleOutput is a read-only API operation and RunInstances is a write-only API operation.

By default, the value is All.
