Amazon Web Services Management Console sign-in events - Amazon CloudTrail
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Amazon Web Services Management Console sign-in events

CloudTrail logs attempts to sign in to the Amazon Web Services Management Console, the Amazon Discussion Forums, and the Amazon Support Center. All IAM user and root user sign-in events, as well as all federated user sign-in events, generate records in CloudTrail log files. For information about finding and viewing logs, see Finding your CloudTrail log files and Downloading your CloudTrail log files.

Note

If you sign-in using the Amazon Sign-In global endpoint or sign-in as the root user, CloudTrail records the ConsoleLogin event in us-east-1.

If you sign-in using a Regional endpoint, CloudTrail records the ConsoleLogin event in the appropriate Region for the endpoint. For more information about Amazon Sign-In endpoints, see Amazon Sign-In endpoints and quotas.

Example event records for IAM users
