Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Contains a response to a LookupEvents action.

    • Events (list) --

      A list of events returned based on the lookup attributes specified and the CloudTrail event. The events list is sorted by time. The most recent event is listed first.

      • (dict) --

        Contains information about an event that was returned by a lookup request. The result includes a representation of a CloudTrail event.

        • EventId (string) --

          The CloudTrail ID of the event returned.

        • EventName (string) --

          The name of the event returned.

        • ReadOnly (string) --

          Information about whether the event is a write event or a read event.

        • EventSource (string) --

          The Amazon Web Services service to which the request was made.

Some examples of resource types are: Instance for EC2, Trail for CloudTrail, DBInstance for Amazon RDS, and AccessKey for IAM. To learn more about how to look up and filter events by the resource types supported for a service, see Filtering CloudTrail Events.

            • ResourceName (string) --

              The name of the resource referenced by the event returned. These are user-created names whose values will depend on the environment. For example, the resource name might be "auto-scaling-test-group" for an Auto Scaling Group or "i-1234567" for an EC2 Instance.

        • CloudTrailEvent (string) --

          A JSON string that contains a representation of the event returned.
