Last Updated:Sep 20, 2023

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 that are 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 use ActionTrail to deliver these events to Simple 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?


ActionTrail allows you to query events about Alibaba Cloud CDN. You can query the details of an event to obtain information such as the time when the event is generated, the region where the event is generated, and the domain name that is involved.

For more information, see CDN.
