AWS CloudTrail

tap-aws-cloudtrail (airbyte variant)

Secure Standardized Logging

The tap-aws-cloudtrail extractor pulls data from AWS CloudTrail that can then be sent to a destination using a loader.

⚠️ Experimental Preview Warning ⚠️

This connector uses tap-airbyte-wrapper to call the underlying Docker container for the source. This means you must have Docker installed and running prior to usage. We also recommend using Meltano version 2.13.0 or later.
For more context on how this Airbyte integration works please checkout out the FAQ in the Meltano Docs.
