AWS CloudTrail Event History is now available to all customers. CloudTrail Event History (formerly known as API Activity History) lets you view, search, and download your recent AWS account activity. This allows you to gain visibility into your account actions taken through the AWS Management Console, SDKs, and CLI to enable governance, compliance, and operational and risk auditing of your AWS account.
Previously, you could only view your account activity by setting up CloudTrail for your account. Now, you can view the past 7 days of CloudTrail Event History immediately through the AWS CloudTrail console and AWS CLI without setting up CloudTrail. You can still set up CloudTrail to deliver your CloudTrail events to Amazon S3, Amazon CloudWatch Logs, and Amazon CloudWatch Events if you want to archive, analyze, and respond to changes in your AWS resources. Please visit AWS CloudTrail documentation page for more information.
AWS CloudTrail Event History is available in all AWS public regions, AWS GovCloud (US), and China (Beijing). Please visit here to see the full list of supported regions.
