You can enable Cloud Trace for ASP.NET Framework applications
by using the
client library for C#.
In this page you will find general information on how to enable and
configure Trace in Google Cloud. For examples on how to
configure and use the
Configure your platform
You can use Cloud Trace on Google Cloud and other platforms.
Running on Google Cloud
When your application is running on Google Cloud, you don't need to provide authentication credentials in the form of a service account to the client library. However, you do need to ensure that your Google Cloud platform has the Cloud Trace API access scope enabled.
For the following configurations, the default access-scope settings enable the Cloud Trace API:
- App Engine flexible environment
Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)
If you use custom access scopes, then you must ensure that
Cloud Trace API access scope
is enabled. For
gcloud users, specify access scopes using the
and include the
trace.append Cloud Trace API access scope.
For example, to create a GKE cluster with only
the Cloud Trace API enabled, do the following:
gcloud container clusters create example-cluster-name --scopes=https://www.googleapis.com/auth/trace.append
Running locally and elsewhere
If your application is running outside of Google Cloud, then you must provide authentication credentials in the form of a service account to the client library. The service account must contain the Cloud Trace agent role. For instructions, see Creating a service account.
Google Cloud client libraries use
Application Default Credentials (ADC) to find your
application's credentials. You provide these credentials
by setting the
GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS environment variable:
Viewing the traces
After deployment, you can view the traces in the Cloud Console Trace Viewer.
