This topic describes how to use ActionTrail to query events about Alibaba Cloud CDN.

Background information

ActionTrail is a service that monitors and records the operations performed by your Alibaba Cloud account. The operations include your access to and use of cloud services by using the Alibaba Cloud Management Console, APIs, and SDKs. ActionTrail records these operations as events. You can download these events from the ActionTrail console or enable ActionTrail to deliver these events to Log Service Logstores or Object Storage Service (OSS) buckets. Then, you can perform behavior analytics, security analytics, resource change tracking, and compliance auditing based on the events. For more information, see What is ActionTrail?
