AWS CloudTrail provides a management system that enables users to manage and deploy networks at geographically distributed locations. The System Monitor Agent can import CloudTrail events into LogRhythm for analysis. This document explains how to configure the collection of CloudTrail events using the web console's cloud to cloud functionality. This is available to LRCloud customers only.


Before you start to configure collection from O365, you must ensure the following:

  • Customer is an LRCloud customer and has their environment hosted.
  • You have a valid AWS Access Key and Secret Access Key.
