You can now configure Amazon Neptune to publish audit logs to Amazon CloudWatch Logs.

Publishing these logs to CloudWatch Logs allows you to maintain continuous visibility into database activity in your Amazon Neptune databases. For example, you can set up CloudWatch Alarms for events recorded audit logs to alert on unwanted changes made to your databases.

CloudWatch Logs provide a durable archive destination. You can specify a retention period to indicate how long you want CloudWatch to retain your logs. Additionally, with CloudWatch Logs, you can perform ad hoc searches across multiple logs. This capability is particularly useful for audits and log analysis.

To start publishing logs from Amazon Neptune databases to CloudWatch Logs, visit the Amazon Neptune Management Console or download the latest AWS SDK or CLI. Please refer to the Amazon Neptune User Guide for more details. Refer to Amazon Neptune Pricing for pricing and regional availability.
