Service-linked channels - 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).

Service-linked channels

Amazon services can create a service-linked channel to receive CloudTrail events on your behalf. The Amazon service creating the service-linked channel configures advanced event selectors for the channel and specifies whether the channel applies to all Amazon Web Services Regions, or a single Amazon Web Services Region.

Viewing service-linked channels by using the console

Using the CloudTrail console, you can view information about any CloudTrail service-linked channels created by Amazon services. The table is empty if your account does not have any service-linked channels.

Use the following procedure to view information about a service-linked channel.

  1. Choose Settings in the left navigation pane of the CloudTrail console.

  2. From Service-linked channels, choose a service-linked channel to view its details.
