Share data with Google Cloud Platform services

In the Admin console, you can share data from your G Suite, Cloud Identity, or Drive Enterprise account with services in your organization’s Google Cloud Platform (GCP) account. 

What data is shared

Currently, you can share only Enterprise Groups Audit Activity Events log data with GCP.  The Enterprise Groups Audit Activity Events log includes a subset of events in the Admin console, Google Groups, Directory API, and Groups Settings API. You can access the shared data through the GCP Cloud Audit Logs.  

Data stored or processed in Google Cloud Platform Services is subject to your organization's Google Cloud Platform Terms of Service. 

Data retention

Shared data is available to Google Stackdriver at near real-time and retained according to the GCP Admin Audit log retention policy (which differs from the Admin Console retention).  

When you turn off sharing, no new data is shared with GCP services, and any existing shared data follows the GCP Admin Audit log retention policy.
