As your organization's administrator, you can use the audit and investigation page to run searches related to OAuth log events. There you can view a record of actions to review which users are using which third-party mobile or web applications in your domain. For example, when a user opens a Google Workspace Marketplace app, the log records the name of the app and the person using it.
The log also records each time a third-party application is authorized to access Google Account data, such as Google Contacts, Calendar, and Drive files (Google Workspace only).
For a full list of services and activities that you can investigate, such as Google Drive or user activity, read through the data sources for the audit and investigation page.
Forward log event data to Google Cloud
This feature is available with Cloud Identity Premium edition. Compare editions
You can opt in to share the log event data with Google Cloud. If you turn on sharing, data is forwarded to Cloud Logging, where you can query and view your logs, and control how you route and store your logs.
