AWS CloudTrail announces delegated administrator account support for AWS Organizations

Today, AWS CloudTrail announces support for a delegated administrator account, which provides customers with the ability to manage organization trails and CloudTrail Lake event data stores from an account other than the management account in AWS Organizations. Delegated administrator support enables flexibility for customers by allowing the management account to delegate CloudTrail administrative actions to an organization member account, such as their security and logging member account. With this feature, the management account of an organization remains the owner of all CloudTrail organization resources, even when those organization trails or CloudTrail Lake event data store resources are created and managed through the delegated administrator account. This helps customers with maintaining continuity of organization-wide CloudTrail audit logs, avoiding any disruption when changes are made to their organization in AWS Organizations.
