Project Description

📖 < 1 min read
You can now enable audit logging for Google Cloud Search APIs for improved tracking of usage data. With deeper tracking, it’s now possible to build richer analytics on top of Cloud Search usage to make data driven decisions and improve your user’s search experience.
When enabled, your Cloud Search APIs usage data are logged in a secure way and are easily accessible to you. Some data points that are logged are:
  • Method and API details.
  • Relevant content of the request and response received.
  • IP address and identity (e.g. mail ID) of the caller.
  • Response status, etc.

Admins and developers

Why you’d use it

Audit logs help you understand how Cloud Search is being used within your organization by answering questions such as which API was called by whom, when, and with what parameters. Additionally, you can also use these logs for troubleshooting or auditing purposes.
