Collect AWS CloudTrail Logs using AWS CloudTrail source. AWS DataSync is integrated with AWS CloudTrail, a service that provides a record of actions taken by a user, role, or AWS service in AWS DataSync. CloudTrail captures all API calls for AWS DataSync as events, which includes calls from the AWS DataSync console and code calls to the AWS DataSync API operations. If you create a trail, you can enable continuous delivery of CloudTrail events to an Amazon S3 bucket, including events for AWS DataSync. Using the information collected by CloudTrail, you can determine the request that was made to AWS DataSync, the IP address from which the request was made, who made the request, when it was made, and additional details.
