Consolidated Google Groups audit logs now available in G Suite and GCP



Combined Google Groups audit logs are currently accessible in the G Suite AdminSDK Reports API and GCP Cloud Audit Logs.
Changes in the G Suite AdminSDK Reports API
We're presenting another combined log named groups_enterprise, which incorporates changes to groups and group memberships over all products and APIs. These were recently split over the gatherings and administrator audit logs.
Changes to groups have truly been signed in either the groups or administrator audit logs. Changes made in the Google Groups item are signed in the group log while changes made through administrator tools like the Admin console, AdminSDK, and GCDS are signed in the administrator log. As a feature of our endeavors to streamline organization and increase transparency, we're presenting another combined log named groups_enterprise, which incorporates changes to groups and group membership over all products and APIs. This new log is presently accessible through the AdminSDK Reports API and will be accessible in the Admin reassure later on.


Changes in GCP Cloud Audit Logging

We're adding Google Groups data to Cloud Audit Logs (CAL) in Stackdriver. See our Cloud Blog post for more details on how this could help GCP clients. Note that this won't change the visibility of these logs in the G Suite Admin panel - it just adds them to Cloud Audit Logs (CAL) in Stackdriver also.


Google Groups are the known method to concede access to GCP resources when utilizing IAM policies. GCP clients have revealed to us that having group audit logs accessible in Google Cloud Audit Logs would help streamline security and access observing. WIth that in mind, we're adding Google Groups data to Cloud Audit Logs (CAL) in Stackdriver.


These changes will help improve the security and usability of Groups as an IAM tool by streamlining administration, transparency, and access monitoring.


How to get started

  • Changes in the G Suite AdminSDK Reports API: Get started with the AdminSDK Reports API.
  • Changes in GCP Cloud Audit Logging: This is an opt-in feature that can be enabled at G Suite Admin console > Company profile > Legal & Compliance > Sharing options.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo

Access well-known educational technology tools straight from Google Classroom.

  We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with a new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them. For further information on how to install the add-ons functionality and specific add-ons for a domain, OU, o
