Does Wasabi support data access auditing? (Bucket Logging)

Yes, customers can optionally configure Wasabi buckets to create access log records for all requests made against it. These access log records can be used for audit purposes and contain details about the request, such as the request type, the resources specified in the request, and the time and date the request was processed.

Enabling/Disabling Bucket Logging

Logging creates a text log file of all access to the bucket.

Note:   Use logging cautiously because when logging is enabled, all log files are saved. This means the costs could be high, eventually, as more log files are stored. Monitor your log use and delete old ones when they are no longer needed. For additional information, refer to:

    1. Click three_dots.png for the bucket and click Settings.

    2. On the PROPERTIES panel, open the Logging drop-down.

    3. Slide to enable the Enable Bucket Logging option. The slide option appears blue:  blue_active.png

    4. Enter the name of a Target Bucket in which to store log files. Click in this field to select from a list of buckets.

    5. Enter a Logging Prefix to include in the log file name. Each log file will start with the characters you enter.


Finally, Click SAVE SETTINGS to confirm your settings.


Our Bucket Logs follow the same structure as AWS (

The column headers included are:






Remote IP



"Request ID"  Operation Key Request-URI


(3 digit status)

Note that any field with no data is represented with a "-"

For example:

You can review this in the Wasabi Management Console User Guide in the Enable/Disable Bucket Logging Section. 



Do NOT set your logging bucket to be the monitored bucket. It will create a logging loop, and your bucket will grow in size exponentially. Hence please be sure to collect logs at a new destination bucket.
