Enabling Access Transparency

This page explains how you can enable and disable Access Transparency for your Google Cloud organization.

Requirements for enabling Access Transparency

To enable Access Transparency for your Google Cloud organization, your Google Cloud organization must have one of the following customer support levels:

Enabling Access Transparency

You can enable Access Transparency using the Google Cloud Console. For more information, see the section Configuring Access Transparency using the Cloud Console.

If you're not sure whether your Google Cloud organization has the appropriate Support level, check your Google Cloud Support console:

Go to Support Console

In the Support panel, you see either your Support status or the option to upgrade your level.

Configuring Access Transparency using the Cloud Console

If your Google Cloud organization has the Gold or Platinum support package, follow these instructions to enable or disable Access Transparency using the Cloud Console:

  1. Check your organization-level permissions:

    1. Go to the Cloud Console IAM page:

      Go to IAM

    2. If you're prompted, select the Google Cloud organization in the selector menu.

    3. Verify that you have the IAM role Access Transparency Admin (roles/axt.admin) listed in the Role column for your Member listing.

  2. Select any Google Cloud project within the organization using the selector menu.

    Access Transparency is configured on a Google Cloud project page but Access Transparency is enabled for the entire organization. To enable Access Transparency per project, contact Google Cloud Support.

  3. Verify that the Google Cloud project is associated with a billing account; you can configure Access Transparency in the Cloud Console only from a project that is associated with a billing account:

    1. In the left-hand navigation menu, select Billing. If you see the message This project is not associated with a billing account, then either select a different project or see instructions for Changing the billing account for a project.
  4. Go to the IAM & Admin > Settings page.

    1. Click the Enable Access Transparency button.

    If your Google Cloud project isn't associated with the proper Support package or billing account, or you lack the proper permissions, then this button isn't displayed. Contact Google Cloud Support for further assistance.
