public class CreateTrailRequest : AmazonCloudTrailRequest

The CreateTrailRequest type exposes the following members


Public Method CreateTrailRequest()


Public Property CloudWatchLogsLogGroupArn System.String

Gets and sets the property CloudWatchLogsLogGroupArn.

Specifies a log group name using an Amazon Resource Name (ARN), a unique identifier that represents the log group to which CloudTrail logs will be delivered. Not required unless you specify CloudWatchLogsRoleArn.

Public Property CloudWatchLogsRoleArn System.String

Gets and sets the property CloudWatchLogsRoleArn.

Specifies the role for the CloudWatch Logs endpoint to assume to write to a user's log group.

Public Property EnableLogFileValidation System.Boolean

Gets and sets the property EnableLogFileValidation.

Specifies whether log file integrity validation is enabled. The default is false.

When you disable log file integrity validation, the chain of digest files is broken after one hour. CloudTrail will not create digest files for log files that were delivered during a period in which log file integrity validation was disabled. For example, if you enable log file integrity validation at noon on January 1, disable it at noon on January 2, and re-enable it at noon on January 10, digest files will not be created for the log files delivered from noon on January 2 to noon on January 10. The same applies whenever you stop CloudTrail logging or delete a trail.

Gets and sets the property IncludeGlobalServiceEvents.

Specifies whether the trail is publishing events from global services such as IAM to the log files.
