Hi there. Welcome to Managing GCP Operations Logging on GCP. My name is Thomas Mitchell and I’ll be taking you through this course.

I’m a GCP instructor at cloud Academy and I have over 25 years of IT experience, several of those with cloud technologies. If you have any questions about this course, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn, or send an email to support@cloudacademy.com.

This course is intended for those who wish to learn how to use and manage cloud logging on the GCP platform, and it is split into two sections. In the first section, we’ll cover the use of different logging tools. In the second half of the course, we’ll take a look at cloud audit logs. 

We’ll kick things off by writing and listing log entries, using gcloud. You’ll get to see how you can use the API Explorer to list log entries. We’ll follow up with Logs Explorer, where you’ll get to see how you can view logs and query log entries, using Logs Explorer.

After covering the logging tools, we’ll take a look at cloud audit logs. We’ll start by taking an overview look at the different types of logs, before talking about how you can view audit logs and export audit logs.

We’ll wind things down by covering audit log retention.

After finishing this course, you'll come away with a solid understanding of how to use and manage GCP operations logging.
