  billing_account = "ABCDEF-012345-GHIJKL"

  # Can export to pubsub, cloud storage, or bigquery
  destination = "storage.googleapis.com/${google_storage_bucket.log-bucket.name}"

resource "google_storage_bucket" "log-bucket" {
  name = "billing-logging-bucket"

resource "google_project_iam_binding" "log-writer" {

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • name - (Required) The name of the logging sink.

  • billing_account - (Required) The billing account exported to the sink.

  • destination - (Required) The destination of the sink (or, in other words, where logs are written to). Can be a Cloud Storage bucket, a PubSub topic, or a BigQuery dataset. Examples: "storage.googleapis.com/[GCS_BUCKET]" "bigquery.googleapis.com/projects/[PROJECT_ID]/datasets/[DATASET]" "pubsub.googleapis.com/projects/[PROJECT_ID]/topics/[TOPIC_ID]" The writer associated with the sink must have access to write to the above resource.

  • filter - (Optional) The filter to apply when exporting logs. Only log entries that match the filter are exported. See Advanced Log Filters for information on how to write a filter.

  • bigquery_options - (Optional) Options that affect sinks exporting data to BigQuery. Structure documented below.

The bigquery_options block supports:

  • use_partitioned_tables - (Required) Whether to use BigQuery's partition tables. By default, Logging creates dated tables based on the log entries' timestamps, e.g. syslog_20170523. With partitioned tables the date suffix is no longer present and special query syntax has to be used instead. In both cases, tables are sharded based on UTC timezone.

» Attributes Reference

In addition to the arguments listed above, the following computed attributes are exported:

  • id - an identifier for the resource with format billingAccounts/{{billing_account_id}}/sinks/{{sink_id}}

  • writer_identity - The identity associated with this sink. This identity must be granted write access to the configured destination.

» Import

Billing account logging sinks can be imported using this format:

$ terraform import google_logging_billing_account_sink.my_sink billingAccounts/{{billing_account_id}}/sinks/{{sink_id}}
