ActionTrail: Action Monitoring and Recording

June 22, 2021

ActionTrail tracks your Alibaba Cloud account actions and records them as events to facilitate auditing. ActionTrail allows you to deliver these events to the specified Log Service Logstores and Object Storage Service (OSS) buckets. You can also query and download the recorded events. Then, you can perform behavior analysis, security analysis, and compliance auditing and track resource changes based on the events.

ActionTrail records the actions you take in the Alibaba Cloud Management console or by calling API operations and the actions triggered by Alibaba Cloud services when these services assume RAM roles. When an action is taken, ActionTrail tracks and records the action in ten minutes.
