You can use the audit and investigation page to run searches related to Groups Enterprise log events. There you can view a record of actions performed on groups (including target audiences) and group memberships. These actions are performed within the Google Admin console, the Google Cloud console, the Admin SDK API, the Cloud Identity API, and within the Google Groups user interface. For example, you can see when an administrator added a user or when a group owner deleted their group.
Dynamic log events are available in the Groups Enterprise log events. When membership in dynamic groups changes, the log event indicates that Google System took the action.
Note: To view changes to groups, group memberships, and group messages that are performed within the Google Groups interface, go to Groups log events.
