Today, Amazon WorkMail released two new features: an administrative SDK and AWS CloudTrail integration.

With the administrative SDK, you can natively integrate WorkMail with your existing services. The SDK enables programmatic user, email group, and meeting room or equipment resource management through API calls. This means your existing IT service management tools, workflows, and third party applications can automate WorkMail migration and management tasks. For example, your existing on-boarding workflow can programmatically create new WorkMail user accounts every time an employee joins your organization with just a few lines of code.  

WorkMail now integrates with CloudTrail. CloudTrail is a service that enables governance, compliance, operational auditing, and risk auditing of your AWS account. With CloudTrail, you can log, continuously monitor, and retain account activity related to actions across your AWS infrastructure including activity from the WorkMail console and calls made to the WorkMail administrative API. This event history simplifies security analysis, resource change tracking, and troubleshooting. 

The WorkMail administrative SDK is part of the AWS SDK, so you can get started using the tools you are already familiar with. It is available in Java, Python, Go, Java Script, .NET, PHP, and Ruby. To learn more about CloudTrail, including how to configure and enable it, see the AWS CloudTrail User Guide. These features are available today in all AWS Regions where WorkMail is available. There is no charge for WorkMail API calls, and CloudTrail allows you to view and download recent account activity to create, modify, and delete operations of supported services free of charge. If you use S3 with CloudTrail, charges apply based on your usage. Visit CloudTrail Pricing for details.
