Stackdriver Workspaces and Logging

You need a Workspace to send logs from an Amazon Web Service (AWS) account.

You cannot use a Workspace to view logs from multiple projects and AWS accounts at the same time. You must view or export the logs from each project and AWS account individually.

For an explanation of what Workspaces are and how they work, see Stackdriver Workspaces. For a step-by-step guide to creating and using Workspaces see Managing Workspaces.

Accessing AWS logs

To get logs from an AWS account, follow the instructions for Monitoring a single AWS account or Monitoring multiple projects. Each Amazon account is connected to GCP using an AWS connector project. You will find the logs from your Amazon account in the connector project, not in the Workspace that contains the monitoring information.

You can find out the names of AWS connector projects in a Workspace by visiting the Workspace settings page for the Workspace:

Go to the Stackdriver Workspace settings page

Accessing GCP logs from a Workspace

If a Workspace is already monitoring multiple GCP projects, then you can find the monitoring information from those projects in the Workspace. However, you must look in the individual projects for their logs—the monitored projects or hosting project in the Workspace.

You can find out which GCP projects are being monitored by a Workspace by visiting the Workspace settings page for the Workspace:
