Troubleshooting workspaces

This page shows you how to resolve issues with Cloud Monitoring Workspaces.

Adding a project to a Workspace failed.

If you try to add a project that is already associated with a Workspace to another Workspace, then the add operation fails because projects can be associated with only one Workspace at a time.

To resolve this issue, move the project from the current Workspace to the other Workspace. For information, see Moving a project to another Workspace.

Workspace isn't accessible

Cloud Monitoring relies on cookies from various Google sites to manage Workspaces. When cookies are blocked, you can't log in. You might see the following results:

  • Cannot get past the Log in with Google dialog, and you see a message saying “Cookies aren't enabled in current environment”.

  • Get stuck in an endless authentication loop.

Cookies can be blocked accidentally, or by automatic updates pushed out as part of changes in security policy at your location.

To resolve this issue, ensure that third-party cookies enabled for the following:

Merge button isn't visible

Monitoring is changing the way data related to your projects is organized. The use of Workspaces is being replaced with metrics scopes.

If your Settings page doesn't contain a Merge button, then your project is using the metrics scope data model or the hybrid model. The merge functionality is obsolete with these data models because projects aren't restricted to belonging to one Workspace.

For information about how to view metrics for multiple projects, see Viewing metrics for multiple projects.
