ASSOCIATED DRATA CONTROL

This test is part of the Logs Centrally Stored control that ensures your company uses a system that collects and stores server logs in a central location. This control also verifies the system can be queried in an ad hoc fashion by authorized users.

WHAT TO DO IF A TEST FAILS

If Drata finds that logging has not been enabled on your infrastructure, or that it is enabled but not being used, the test will fail.

To remediate a failed test, you will need to enable logging on your observability provider. To see details on how this test operates as part of the Datadog connection, please go to this article.
