Trigger type: configuration change

Applicable resource type: ACS::ActionTrail::Trail

Cause: Logging is not enabled for a trail of your account. Solution: Turn on the Status switch for the trail. Cloud Config detects the configuration change and starts to re-evaluate the resource within 10 minutes. You can fix this non-compliance issue by using one of the following methods:
  • ActionTrail console
    1. Log on to the ActionTrail console.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose ActionTrail > Trails.
    3. On the Trails page, find the trail and click the trail name. On the page that appears, turn on the Status switch.
  • API

    You can also call the StartLogging API operation to enable logging. For more information, see StartLogging.
