You can create a rule to check whether trails in ActionTrail are enabled.


  1. Log on to the Cloud Config console.

    Note To meet the compliance requirements, we recommend that you activate ActionTrail. This can be used to monitor the operations of your account on resources.

  6. In the Remediation Settings step, select Disable Remediation in the Remediation Method section, and then click Submit.
