Collect Google Cloud IDS logs

This document describes how you can collect Google Cloud IDS logs by enabling Google Cloud telemetry ingestion to Chronicle and how log fields of Google Cloud IDS logs map to Chronicle Unified Data Model (UDM) fields.

For more information, see Data ingestion to Chronicle.

A typical deployment consists of Google Cloud IDS logs enabled for ingestion to Chronicle. Each customer deployment might differ from this representation and might be more complex.

The deployment contains the following components:

  • Google Cloud: The Google Cloud services and products from which you collect logs.

  • Google Cloud IDS logs: The Google Cloud IDS logs that are enabled for ingestion to Chronicle.

  • Chronicle: Chronicle retains and analyzes the logs from Google Cloud IDS.

An ingestion label identifies the parser which normalizes raw log data to structured UDM format. The information in this document applies to the parser with the GCP_IDS ingestion label.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that all systems in the deployment architecture are configured in the UTC time zone.

Configure Google Cloud to ingest Google Cloud IDS logs

To ingest Google Cloud IDS logs to Chronicle, follow the steps on the Ingest Google Cloud logs to Chronicle page.

If you encounter issues when you ingest Google Cloud IDS logs, contact Chronicle support.
