Audit Log Streaming to Datadog is generally available

GitHub Enterprise Cloud customers can now stream their audit log to a Datadog endpoint. Enterprise owners need to be able to use the right tools for their job, whether that be short-term investigation or longer-term threat analysis and prevention. With audit log streaming to Datadog, customers can be assured that:

  • no audit log event will be lost,
  • they may satisfy longer-term data retention goals, and
  • they can analyze GitHub's audit log data using Datadog products.

For GitHub Enterprise Server customers, this feature is planned to come to GHES 3.8.

For additional information, read our documentation about setting up streaming to Datadog.

GitHub Enterprise Cloud customers can now participate in a private beta enabling authentication token data to display for audit log events. In doing so, enterprise owners will be able to query their audit logs for activity associated with specific authentication tokens. With the introduction of this feature, enterprise owners will be better equipped to detect and trace activity associated with corrupt authentication tokens, which have the potential to provide threat actors access to sensitive private assets.

Enterprise owners interested in participating in the private beta should reach out to your GitHub account manager or contact our sales team to have this feature enabled for your enterprise. Once enabled, enterprise owners can find guidance and provide feedback at the displaying authentication token data in enterprise audit log events community discussion..
