Viewing pipeline logs in Cloud Logging

This page explains how to enable Cloud Logging for your Cloud Data Fusion instance and how to view pipeline logs.

Before you begin

Create a Cloud Data Fusion instance. It takes up to 30 minutes for the instance creation process to complete.

Enabling Cloud Logging

To use Cloud Logging with your Cloud Data Fusion pipeline, enable Cloud Logging when you create your Cloud Data Fusion instance.

  1. In the console open the Instances page.
  2. Click Create instance.
  3. Click Show advanced options.
  4. Under Logging and monitoring, click Enable Stackdriver logging service.

    Enable Cloud Logging.

After you create your instance, you cannot enable Cloud Logging in the console. Instead, run this gcloud CLI command:

gcloud beta data-fusion instances update INSTANCE_NAME \
  --project=PROJECT_ID \
  --location=LOCATION \

Viewing logs

Every Cloud Data Fusion pipeline run is assigned a unique RunID. After you deploy and run your pipeline, find its RunID. Then, in Logging, use the RunID to view your pipeline logs.

Getting your pipeline RunID

  1. Go to the Pipeline Studio in the Cloud Data Fusion UI.
  2. Click Summary.
  3. In the Summary page, click the Table tab.
  4. Click the RunId link to copy.

    Copy RunID.

Viewing logs

  1. Go to the Cloud Logging > Logs Explorer page in the console:

    Go to the Logs Explorer page

  2. In the filter menus, select Cloud Dataproc Cluster > cdap-PIPELINE_NAME-YOUR_RUNID.

    Go to Cloud Logging.

Filtering logs

Use the filter menus to filter your logs. You can filter by various log severity levels or by components such as datafusion-pipeline-logs.
