Bastionhost allows you to archive audit logs in Log Service. The audit logs record all O&M activities. After you configure the archiving settings for audit logs, Bastionhost automatically delivers the audit logs to Log Service. This topic describes how to archive audit logs in Log Service.

Background information

Audit logs record the O&M activities that O&M engineers perform by using Bastionhost. Bastionhost stores audit logs only for 180 days. If you want to store audit logs longer than 180 days, you can archive the audit logs in Log Service. In the Log Service console, you can customize the log retention period. In addition, you can query and analyze the audit logs. For more information, see Log search overview and Log analysis overview.

Note The archiving operation does not affect the audit logs that are stored in Bastionhost. You can still view these audit logs on the Session Audit page of the Bastionhost console. For more information, see Search for sessions and view session details.
