AWS Aurora

Connecting AWS Aurora MySQL Relational Database Service (RDS) logs to your Panther Console


Panther supports ingesting Amazon Web Services (AWS) Aurora MySQL Relational Database Service (RDS) logs via AWS S3.

How to onboard AWS Aurora logs to Panther

To pull Aurora logs into Panther, you will need to set up an S3 bucket in the Panther Console to stream data from your AWS account.

  1. In the lefthand navigation bar of your Panther Console, click Configure > Log Sources.

  2. Click Create New.

  3. Search "AWS" to see the list of available log sources.

  4. Select AWS Aurora MySQL.

  5. Select AWS S3 Bucket for your source to begin setup. Follow Panther’s documentation for configuring S3 for data transport.
