Panther Audit Logs
Logs of audited activity within your instance of Panther

Overview

Panther audit logs provide a read-only history of activity within your Panther deployment. With Panther audit logs as a log source enabled, you can write detections or query the data lake for audit logs the same way you would with any other security events ingested by Panther.
Audit logging does not currently include an exhaustive list of all activity in Panther (such references to specific log sources, cloud accounts, and destinations).
If you have any questions about this feature, reach out to Panther Support.

Enabling audit logs

Audit logs are automatically generated, but must be enabled by your Panther support team to use them as a log source.

Retention

Audit logs are retained by default for 5 years in AWS S3.
