Tracking AWS API activity using CloudTrail

AWS CloudTrail is a web service for recording API activity (across AWS Console, CLI, or from within SDKs) in your AWS account. It can also record higher-level API calls from AWS services; for example, CloudFormation calls to other services such as EC2. CloudTrail events provide a rich source of information for AWS API calls including the user, timing, nature, resources, and location of an API call. Therefore, CloudTrail logs can be very helpful in incident analysis, tracking changes made to AWS resource configurations, and troubleshooting operational issues.
