API Gateway must have X-Ray tracing enabled

Explanation

X-Ray tracing enables end-to-end debugging and analysis of all API Gateway HTTP requests.

Possible Impact

WIthout full tracing enabled it is difficult to trace the flow of logs

Suggested Resolution

Enable tracing

Insecure Example

The following example will fail the aws-api-gateway-enable-tracing check.

resource "aws_api_gateway_stage" "bad_example" {
  stage_name    = "prod"
  rest_api_id   = aws_api_gateway_rest_api.test.id
  deployment_id = aws_api_gateway_deployment.test.id
  xray_tracing_enabled = false
}

Secure Example

The following example will pass the aws-api-gateway-enable-tracing check.

resource "aws_api_gateway_stage" "good_example" {
  stage_name    = "prod"
  rest_api_id   = aws_api_gateway_rest_api.test.id
  deployment_id = aws_api_gateway_deployment.test.id
  xray_tracing_enabled = true
}
