Amazon SWF Customers, Amazon SWF now supports AWS CloudTrail, a web service that records API calls made on your account and delivers log files to your Amazon S3 bucket.

CloudTrail provides increased visibility into AWS user activity that occurs within an AWS account and allows you to track changes that were made to AWS resources. CloudTrail makes it easier for customers to demonstrate compliance with internal policies or regulatory standards. For more details, refer to the AWS compliance white paper "Security at scale: Logging in AWS”. Additionally, you can use the API call history produced by CloudTrail to perform security analysis and troubleshoot operational issues.

There is no additional charge for CloudTrail, but standard rates for Amazon S3 and Amazon SNS usage apply. Refer to Amazon S3 and Amazon SNS pricing pages for details.

You can turn on CloudTrail from the AWS Management Console in two clicks. To learn more about CloudTrail, visit the CloudTrail detail page, frequently asked questions, documentation , and CloudTrail partners page.
