Logging Client Libraries

This page shows how to get started with the Cloud Client Libraries for the Cloud Logging API. Read more about the client libraries for Cloud APIs, including the older Google APIs Client Libraries, in Client Libraries Explained.

Installing the client library


For more information, see Setting Up a C# Development Environment.

Install-Package Google.Cloud.Logging.V2


For more information, see Setting Up a Go Development Environment.

go get -u cloud.google.com/go/logging


For more information, see Setting Up a Java Development Environment.

如果您使用的是带有 BOM 的 Maven,请将以下代码添加到您的 pom.xml 文件中:



如果您使用的是不带 BOM 的 Maven,请将以下代码添加到您的依赖项中:


如果您使用的是 Gradle,请将以下代码添加到您的依赖项中:

compile 'com.google.cloud:google-cloud-logging:1.101.2'

如果您使用的是 sbt,请将以下代码添加到您的依赖项中:

libraryDependencies += "com.google.cloud" % "google-cloud-logging" % "1.101.2"

如果您使用的是 IntelliJ 或 Eclipse,可通过以下 IDE 插件将客户端库添加到您的项目中:



For more information, see Setting Up a Node.js Development Environment.

npm install --save @google-cloud/logging


For more information, see Using PHP on Google Cloud.

composer require google/cloud-logging


For more information, see Setting Up a Python Development Environment.

pip install --upgrade google-cloud-logging


For more information, see Setting Up a Ruby Development Environment.

gem install google-cloud-logging

Setting up authentication

To run the client library, you must first set up authentication by creating a service account and setting an environment variable. Complete the following steps to set up authentication. For other ways to authenticate, see the GCP authentication documentation.

Cloud Console

  1. 在 Cloud Console 中,转到创建服务帐号密钥页面。

  2. 服务帐号列表中,选择新的服务帐号
  3. 服务帐号名称字段中,输入一个名称。
  4. 角色列表中,选择项目 > Owner

    注意角色字段会为您的服务帐号授予资源访问权限。您稍后可以使用 Cloud Console 查看和更改此字段。如果您开发的是正式版应用,请指定比项目 > Owner 更为精细的权限。如需了解详情,请参阅为服务帐号授予角色
  5. 点击创建。包含密钥的 JSON 文件就会下载到计算机。


您可以使用本地机器上的 Cloud SDK 或在 Cloud Shell 中运行以下命令。

  1. 创建服务帐号。将 [NAME] 替换为服务帐号的名称。

    gcloud iam service-accounts create [NAME]
  2. 向服务帐号授予权限。将 [PROJECT_ID] 替换为您的项目 ID。

    gcloud projects add-iam-policy-binding [PROJECT_ID] --member "serviceAccount:[NAME]@[PROJECT_ID].iam.gserviceaccount.com" --role "roles/owner"
    注意角色字段会为您的服务帐号授予资源访问权限。您稍后可以使用 Cloud Console 查看和更改此字段。如果您开发的是正式版应用,请指定比项目 > Owner 更为精细的权限。如需了解详情,请参阅向服务帐号授予角色
  3. 生成密钥文件。将 [FILE_NAME] 替换为密钥文件的名称。

    gcloud iam service-accounts keys create [FILE_NAME].json --iam-account [NAME]@[PROJECT_ID].iam.gserviceaccount.com

通过设置环境变量 GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS 向应用代码提供身份验证凭据。 将 [PATH] 替换为包含您的服务帐号密钥的 JSON 文件的路径。此变量仅适用于当前的 Shell 会话,因此,如果您打开新的会话,请重新设置该变量。

Linux 或 macOS



export GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS="/home/user/Downloads/my-key.json"


使用 PowerShell:






Using the client library

The following example shows how to use the client library.


using System;
// Imports the Google Cloud Logging client library
using Google.Cloud.Logging.V2;
using Google.Cloud.Logging.Type;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using Google.Api;

namespace GoogleCloudSamples
    public class QuickStart
        public static void Main(string[] args)
            // Your Google Cloud Platform project ID.
            string projectId = "YOUR-PROJECT-ID";

            // Instantiates a client.
            var client = LoggingServiceV2Client.Create();

            // Prepare new log entry.
            LogEntry logEntry = new LogEntry();
            string logId = "my-log";
            LogName logName = new LogName(projectId, logId);
            LogNameOneof logNameToWrite = LogNameOneof.From(logName);
            logEntry.LogName = logName.ToString();
            logEntry.Severity = LogSeverity.Info;

            // Create log entry message.
            string message = "Hello World!";
            string messageId = DateTime.Now.Millisecond.ToString();
            Type myType = typeof(QuickStart);
            string entrySeverity = logEntry.Severity.ToString().ToUpper();
            logEntry.TextPayload =
                $"{messageId} {entrySeverity} {myType.Namespace}.LoggingSample - {message}";

            // Set the resource type to control which GCP resource the log entry belongs to.
            // See the list of resource types at:
            // https://cloud.google.com/logging/docs/api/v2/resource-list
            // This sample uses resource type 'global' causing log entries to appear in the 
            // "Global" resource list of the Developers Console Logs Viewer:
            //  https://console.cloud.google.com/logs/viewer
            MonitoredResource resource = new MonitoredResource();
            resource.Type = "global";

            // Create dictionary object to add custom labels to the log entry.
            IDictionary<string, string> entryLabels = new Dictionary<string, string>();
            entryLabels.Add("size", "large");
            entryLabels.Add("color", "red");

            // Add log entry to collection for writing. Multiple log entries can be added.
            IEnumerable<LogEntry> logEntries = new LogEntry[] { logEntry };

            // Write new log entry.
            client.WriteLogEntries(logNameToWrite, resource, entryLabels, logEntries);

            Console.WriteLine("Log Entry created.");


// Sample logging-quickstart writes a log entry to Stackdriver Logging.
package main

	// Creates a client.
	client, err := logging.NewClient(ctx, projectID)

	// Sets the name of the log to write to.
	logName := "my-log"

	// Selects the log to write to.
	logger := client.Logger(logName)

	// Sets the data to log.
	text := "Hello, world!"

	// Adds an entry to the log buffer.
	logger.Log(logging.Entry{Payload: text})

	// Closes the client and flushes the buffer to the Stackdriver Logging
	// service.

 * This sample demonstrates writing logs using the Stackdriver Logging API.
 * The library also offers a java.util.logging Handler `com.google.cloud.logging.LoggingHandler`
 * Logback integration is also available : 
 * https://github.com/googleapis/google-cloud-java/tree/master/google-cloud-clients/google-cloud-contrib/google-cloud-logging-logback
 * Using the java.util.logging handler / Logback appender should be preferred to using the API
 * directly.
