Installing the library
To install the Google Cloud Client library for Python, see Installing the client library. Once installed, this library includes the core code to interact with the Logging API as well as the Stackdriver Logging handlers.
Stackdriver Logging handlers
To attach the Stackdriver Logging handlers to your root Python logger, use the
setup_logging helper method on your Logging client:
if not app.testing: client = google.cloud.logging.Client(app.config['PROJECT_ID']) # Attaches a Google Stackdriver logging handler to the root logger client.setup_logging(logging.INFO)
setup_logging is called, the following code will report logs to
Stackdriver Logging. On App Engine or Container Engine, it will send logs
to their respective resource types, or in the general case, logs will apear
under the "python" log in the Global resource type:
import logging logging.error('This is an error')
You can also attach the Stackdriver Logging handlers to non-root loggers, and use a variety of synchronous and asynchronous transport options, such as HTTP, gRPC, or the Stackdriver logging agent. For more information on how to use these options, see integration with Python standard logging usage docs.
