ActionTrail records the events that are related to Identity Management Service (IMS). You can query the details of an event to obtain information such as the time when the event occurred, the region where the event occurred, and the RAM user involved. This topic provides the logs of four sample IMS-related events and describes the key fields included in the event logs.
