AWS Config Rule: Multi-Region CloudTrail Enabled


Ryan Ware

Last Update 4 dagen geleden

Description: Checks if there is at least one multi-region AWS CloudTrail. The rule is NON_COMPLIANT if the trails do not match input parameters. The rule is NON_COMPLIANT if the ExcludeManagementEventSources field is not empty or if AWS CloudTrail is configured to exclude management events such as AWS KMS events or Amazon RDS Data API events.

Trigger type: Periodic

AWS Region: All supported AWS regions except Middle East (UAE) Region

How to Resolve Manually

Creating a CloudTrail in the AWS Console as described in this AWS CloudTrail user guide will create a trail which applies to all regions, thus creating a resource which is considered to be COMPLIANT with this particular AWS Config Rule. 

includeManagementEvents is a boolean parameter which must be included to have your AWS CloudTrail to be considered multi region enabled.

To check if your CloudTrail is a multi-region trail, head on over to your CloudTrail dashboard within your AWS Console and view your Trails.

How to Resolve with StackZone

By design, when StackZone builds you your CloudTrail stack within your StackZone deployment, it is configured to be multi-region.

However, if you already have a CloudTrail which is showing as NON_COMPLIANT, you can enable the remediation for this Config Rule which will allow StackZone to modify your CloudTrail automatically to include Global Service Events and also set the Trail to be multi-region.

To enable this in your StackZone deployment, head on over to BaseLine Services / AWS Config Rules Regional /  Multi Region CloudTrail Remediation and enable the remediation.
