In CloudTrail, how to create a trail that targets only specific type of events?


We'd like to create a CloudTrail trail for management events that targets only specific type of events, for example, EBS volume creation, modification, and deletion. I do not see any option to achieve this. Is it not supported by AWS?

Events such as creation, modification, and deletion of EBS volumes are included in management events.
I don't think it is possible to create a trail by narrowing down to specific events of a specific service with management events.

There is a thing called Advanced Event Selectors that let you filter specific events from Cloudtrail. Here is a blog that shows how & what you can do with it

API level documentation is

  • Hi Kallu, thanks for the answer. Unfortunately the Event Selectors are available only for Data Events. EBS events such as I described are not Data Events, but Management Events. In my question I specifically mentioned Management Events.

    How do we get Event Selectors for Management Events?


  • You're correct. Didn't check all the "small print". This would have been nice feature but I guess the typical volume of mgmt events is more manageable than data events so it isn't too much overhead to do filtering when reading the events.
