Listing CloudTrail Trail Events

This example uses the lookup_events method to list the CloudTrail trail events in the us-west-2 region.

Choose Copy to save the code locally.

Create the file lookup_events.rb. Add the following statement to use the CloudTrail gem of the AWS SDK for Ruby.

require 'aws-sdk-cloudtrail' # v2: require 'aws-sdk'

Create a function to display information about each event.

def show_event(event) puts 'Event name: ' + event.event_name puts 'Event ID: ' + event.event_id puts "Event time: #{event.event_time}" puts 'User name: ' + event.username puts 'Resources:' event.resources.each do |r| puts ' Name: ' + r.resource_name puts ' Type: ' + r.resource_type puts '' end end

Create a CloudTrail client in us-west-2, call lookup_events, and use the show_event function to display information about each event.

client = Aws::CloudTrail::Client.new(region: 'us-west-2') resp = client.lookup_events() puts puts "Found #{resp.events.count} events in us-west-2:" puts resp.events.each do |e| show_event(e) end
