Stop and start event ingestion

By default, event data stores are configured to ingest events. You can stop an event data store from ingesting events by using the console, Amazon CLI, or APIs.

The options to Start ingestion and Stop ingestion are only available on event data stores containing either CloudTrail events (management and data events), or Amazon Config configuration items.

When you stop ingestion on an event data store, the event data store's state changes to STOPPED_INGESTION. You can still run queries on any events already in the event data store. You can also copy trail events to the event data store (if it contains only CloudTrail management or data events).
