Audit Logs

Audit logs allow you to get insights into all actions taken in Scalr, who performed the action, how it was done, and more. Scalr currently supports the streaming of logs to Datadog and AWS EventBridge.


The audit log feature can use the same Datadog connection that is used for events or a new one can be created.

To enable audit logs, go to the account settings page and click on audit logs. Enable the streaming of logs, select Datadog as the destination, and add the connection:

You will now see the Scalr logs in the Datadog logs feature:

Here is an example of a full log output:

AWS EventBridge

The audit logs can also be streamed into the AWS EventBridge service, allowing you to forward logs to any logging service like CloudWatch, New Relic, Sumo Logic, etc. Follow the AWS EventBridge documentation to configure it and enable the log streaming.

Once the EventBridge integration is done, follow the instructions at the top of this page to enable it as the audit logs destination.


The following demo shows how to configure audit logs for Datadog or AWS EventBridge:
