Thank you for your feedback.
Events (API calls) that happen on your AWS account are recorded by AWS CloudTrail and is saved on the Event History. By default it allows you to view, search, and download the past 90 days of activity in your AWS account.
In this scenario, you can create a “trail” to record events on your AWS account. A trail is a configuration that enables the delivery of events to an Amazon S3 bucket that you specify. You can create a CloudTrail trail to archive logs, analyze logs, and/or respond to changes in your AWS resources.
The CloudTrail logs are delivered to S3 in JSON format. The logs are compressed with GZIP compression (you can use 7-zip utility to uncompress them). You can use any normal text viewer to view these logs.
You can also deliver and analyze events in a trail with Amazon CloudWatch Logs and Amazon CloudWatch Events. You can view these logs on the AWS CloudWatch Logs console if you choose to deliver them to CloudWatch.
Hope this helps.
