    # Returns a L<Paws::CloudTrail::CreateTrailResponse> object.

Values for attributes that are native types (Int, String, Float, etc) can passed as-is (scalar values). Values for complex Types (objects) can be passed as a HashRef. The keys and values of the hashref will be used to instance the underlying object. For the AWS API documentation, see


CloudWatchLogsLogGroupArn => Str

Specifies a log group name using an Amazon Resource Name (ARN), a unique identifier that represents the log group to which CloudTrail logs will be delivered. Not required unless you specify CloudWatchLogsRoleArn.

CloudWatchLogsRoleArn => Str

Specifies the role for the CloudWatch Logs endpoint to assume to write to a user's log group.

EnableLogFileValidation => Bool

Specifies whether log file integrity validation is enabled. The default is false.

When you disable log file integrity validation, the chain of digest files is broken after one hour. CloudTrail will not create digest files for log files that were delivered during a period in which log file integrity validation was disabled. For example, if you enable log file integrity validation at noon on January 1, disable it at noon on January 2, and re-enable it at noon on January 10, digest files will not be created for the log files delivered from noon on January 2 to noon on January 10. The same applies whenever you stop CloudTrail logging or delete a trail.

IncludeGlobalServiceEvents => Bool

Specifies whether the trail is publishing events from global services such as IAM to the log files.

IsMultiRegionTrail => Bool

Specifies whether the trail is created in the current region or in all regions. The default is false.

IsOrganizationTrail => Bool

Specifies whether the trail is created for all accounts in an organization in AWS Organizations, or only for the current AWS account. The default is false, and cannot be true unless the call is made on behalf of an AWS account that is the master account for an organization in AWS Organizations.

KmsKeyId => Str

Specifies the KMS key ID to use to encrypt the logs delivered by CloudTrail. The value can be an alias name prefixed by "alias/", a fully specified ARN to an alias, a fully specified ARN to a key, or a globally unique identifier.


  • alias/MyAliasName

  • arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:123456789012:alias/MyAliasName

  • arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:123456789012:key/12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012

  • 12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012

REQUIRED Name => Str

Specifies the name of the trail. The name must meet the following requirements:

  • Contain only ASCII letters (a-z, A-Z), numbers (0-9), periods (.), underscores (_), or dashes (-)

  • Start with a letter or number, and end with a letter or number

  • Be between 3 and 128 characters

  • Have no adjacent periods, underscores or dashes. Names like my-_namespace and my--namespace are invalid.

  • Not be in IP address format (for example,

REQUIRED S3BucketName => Str

Specifies the name of the Amazon S3 bucket designated for publishing log files. See Amazon S3 Bucket Naming Requirements (

S3KeyPrefix => Str

Specifies the Amazon S3 key prefix that comes after the name of the bucket you have designated for log file delivery. For more information, see Finding Your CloudTrail Log Files ( The maximum length is 200 characters.

SnsTopicName => Str

Specifies the name of the Amazon SNS topic defined for notification of log file delivery. The maximum length is 256 characters.
