AWS CloudTrail


The AWS CloudTrail source supports both Full Refresh and Incremental syncs. You can choose if this connector will copy only the new or updated data, or all rows in the tables and columns you set up for replication, every time a sync is run.

This Source Connector is based on a Boto3 CloudTrail.

Output schema

This Source is capable of syncing the following core Streams:

Insight events are not supported right now. Only Management events are available.

Full Refresh SyncYes
Incremental SyncYes

Performance considerations

The rate of lookup requests for events stream is limited to two per second, per account, per region. This connector gracefully retries when encountering a throttling error. However if the errors continue repeatedly after multiple retries (for example if you setup many instances of this connector using the same account and region), the connector sync will fail.

Getting started
