Amazon Cognito identity pools now publishes data events to AWS CloudTrail logs. Customers now have greater visibility into access-related activities for both guest and authenticated users of their applications. Administrators can now configure Amazon CloudWatch Alarms to monitor specific activity on Amazon Cognito identity pools and react based on automated workflows. Customers can record data events in AWS CloudTrail and gain better insight into the identity providers leveraged by users to access AWS resources with Amazon Cognito identity pools. AWS CloudTrail may charge for recording data events. 

Amazon Cognito makes it easier to add authentication, authorization, and user management to your web and mobile apps. Amazon Cognito can also be used to obtain temporary, limited-privilege AWS credentials to access AWS resources. Amazon Cognito scales to millions of users and supports sign-in with social identity providers such as Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon, and enterprise identity providers via standards such as SAML 2.0 and OpenID Connect.

Amazon Cognito identity pools events in AWS CloudTrail are now available in all commercial regions where Amazon Cognito identity pools are available. Pricing for AWS CloudTrail can be found here.
