I want to track which users are making changes to my AWS resources and infrastructure. How do I do this?

Although AWS doesn’t track this information by default, you can enable AWS CloudTrail for your resources, which will create logs of API calls made on your account and deliver them to an S3 bucket you specify. This will allow you to track changes to your resources, and see which user made the changes.

For more information about setting up CloudTrail, see Getting Started with CloudTrail.
