GCP – Getting Started GCP – Getting Started

Last Updated: Mar. 13, 2024


Coralogix offers a number of basic integrations with Google Cloud Platform. However, a prerequisite for each is that you first Configure a Service Account. Once you have created a Service Account and its corresponding API key, access your integration-specific instructions in the table below:

GCP LogsGoogle Workspace Users
GCP TracesGoogle Alert Center
GCP Metrics

Configure a Service Account

This should be done before any GCP integration with Coralogix. Please make sure that you have Super admin permissions. Also, you should have an existing project within Google Cloud. Your new service account will be created there.

On the Google Cloud side, basic Service Account configuration is done in two steps:

Step 1. You first need to create a new Service Account to authenticate with Coralogix.

Step 2. For this account, you will create an API key. This key will be used for the Coralogix integration.

Step 1: Create a Service Account

1. Sign in to Google Cloud Console and choose the project where you want to create the service account.

2. Go to IAM & Admin in the menu and scroll down to Service Accounts.

3. On the Service accounts list, click + CREATE SERVICE ACCOUNT.

4. Input your service account details: name, account ID, and description. Click CREATE AND CONTINUE.

5. Based on the type of integration you are setting up, you may need to assign specific roles to the service account.

  • GCP Logs: To collect logs, select the Pub/Sub Subscriber role.
  • GCP Traces: To collect traces, select BigQuery Job User and BigQuery Data Viewer .
  • GCP Metrics: To collect metrics, select Compute ViewerMonitoring Viewer, and Cloud Asset Viewer.
  • Google Workspace Users: You don’t need to assign roles for this service account.
  • Google Alerts Center: You don’t need to assign roles for this service account.

At the end, click CONTINUE and DONE in the step below. Your service account is now ready for use.

6. Find the new service account on the list. Note down the OAuth 2 Client ID. You will need it to finish this tutorial.

Step 2: Create a Private Key

1. Click the three dots in the rightmost Actions column and choose Manage keys.

2. Click Add Key and choose the JSON Key type. Download it and store locally. You will need to upload it to your Coralogix integration.

Next Steps

Now that you have created a Service Account and an API key, consult our integration-specific tutorials. For these, you will need to use the Coralogix platform.
