This topic describes how to delete a multi-account trail in the ActionTrail console. After you delete a multi-account trail, the trail no longer collects the events of the member accounts in the resource directory.


You cannot delete a trail for which the advanced query feature is enabled. Before you delete a trail, make sure that the advanced query feature is disabled for the trail.


  1. Log on to the ActionTrail console by using the management account.
    Note Member accounts can view multi-account trails but are not authorized to delete them.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Trails.
  3. On the Trails page, find the multi-account trail that you want to delete and click the trail name.
  4. On the page that appears, click Delete in the upper-right corner.
  5. In the Delete Trail message, click OK.
    Notice The events that have been delivered to the specified Log Service Logstore or Object Storage Service (OSS) bucket are not deleted. For information about how to delete these events, see Delete a Logstore or Delete buckets.
