Start an investigation

If your organization uses G Suite Enterprise, you can start an investigation from the alert center by linking directly to the security investigation tool. Using the investigation tool, you can then view additional details about the event, make important adjustments to your Google Admin console settings if needed, or take other actions in response to the alert.

You can start an investigation in two ways:

  • To start an investigation from the main page of the alert center, click one of the magnifying glass icons on the far-right side of the page.
  • To start an investigation from an alert details page, click INVESTIGATE ALERT

Using the details from the alert, conditions for the investigation are then pre-populated in the investigation tool, and the investigation tool opens automatically. Click SEARCH to run the investigation. You can also add conditions or make adjustments to the conditions before clicking SEARCH.

For more details and instructions, see About the security investigation tool.
