Answered by Rafal Wilinski


To enable CloudTrail for DynamoDB, you need to do the following steps:

  1. Open the CloudTrail console in the AWS Management Console.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose "Trails"
  3. Choose "Create trail".
  4. In the "Create Trail" dialog box, for "Apply trail to all regions", select "Yes"
  5. Under "Read/Write events", select the "All" check box.
  6. Choose "Create"

Once CloudTrail is enabled, all DynamoDB API calls in your AWS account will be recorded in CloudTrail log files. These log files can be used to track changes to your DynamoDB tables, troubleshoot issues, and monitor for security-related activity.

Alternatively, you can also use AWS CLI or AWS CloudFormation to enable CloudTrail for DynamoDB. Dynobase also supports enabling CloudTrail for DynamoDB through the user-friendly interface, which can simplify the process.
