About Lab Challenges

Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.

Challenge Description

AWS CloudTrail is a service that enables you to easily track user and API activity in AWS accounts. It seamlessly integrates with other AWS services such as Amazon CloudWatch and Amazon SNS.

Learning how to create and configure AWS CloudTrail resources will make you more able to deliver secure and auditable solutions in the public AWS cloud.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to modify a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge.

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
