AWS IAM Access Analyzer

Supported OS Linux Windows Mac OS


Use AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) Access Analyzer across your Amazon account to continuously analyze IAM permissions granted with any of your account policies. Datadog integrates with Amazon IAM Access Analyzer using a Lambda function that ships its logs to Datadog.


Log collection

  1. If you haven’t already, set up the Datadog Forwarder Lambda function.

  2. Create a new rule in AWS EventBridge.

  3. Define a custom event pattern with the following:

        "source": ["aws.access-analyzer"]
  4. Select an event bus and define the Datadog Lambda function as the target.

  5. Save your rule.

  6. See the Log Explorer to start exploring your logs.
