Class Entry

Create an entry object to define new data to insert into a meta.

Note, [Cloud Logging Quotas and limits]https://cloud.google.com/logging/quotas dictates that the maximum log entry size, including all [LogEntry Resource properties]https://cloud.google.com/logging/docs/reference/v2/rest/v2/LogEntry, cannot exceed _approximately_ 256 KB.

Package

@google-cloud/logging

Example

const {Logging} = require('@google-cloud/logging');
const logging = new Logging();
const syslog = logging.log('syslog');

const metadata = {
  resource: {
    type: 'gce_instance',
    labels: {
      zone: 'global',
      instance_id: '3'
    }
  }
};

const entry = syslog.entry(metadata, {
  delegate: 'my_username'
});

syslog.alert(entry, (err, apiResponse) => {
  if (!err) {
    // Log entry inserted successfully.
  }
});

//-
// You will also receive `Entry` objects when using
// Logging#getEntries() and Log#getEntries().
//-
logging.getEntries((err, entries) => {
  if (!err) {
    // entries[0].data = The data value from the log entry.
  }
});
