GCP Log Explorer is one of the first tools to use to troubleshoot issues and find a solution quickly to problems you might be facing. Coralogix came up with an easy way to help you export Log Explorer logs to help you visualize and filter them and create dashboards to see trends and issues that might arise. Following the steps below will guide you through how to set up the Log Explorer integration.
The tutorial describes how to configure a Logs router to send logs to a Pub/Sub topic and deliver them to Coralogix using a push subscription on the topic.
The main advantage of using a push subscription is that it avoids running any additional software (i.e. functions) in your GCP account which can contribute to operational overhead and costs.
When you create your subscription, you will need to set the correct Endpoint URL using the following parameters:
domain: domain associated with your Coralogix account
key: Coralogix Send-Your-Data API key
application(optional): overrides the default application name
subsystem(optional): overrides the default subsystem name
computer(optional): sets the computer name (otherwise there is no computer name)
To configure the ingestion of GCP log data to Coralogix, we will first create a new topic in Google Cloud Pub/Sub. Then we will configure the topic as a sink in the logs router and configure a subscription to push the data to Coralogix.
STEP 1. Log in to GCP console.
STEP 2. Go to
Topics and create a Topic
STEP 3. Go to
Logs Router and create a Sink
STEP 4. Go to
Subscriptions and create a Subscription
