Configure the moduleedit

In order for Filebeat to ingest data from the Google Reports API you must:

This module will make use of the following oauth2 scope:

  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/admin.reports.audit.readonly

Once you have downloaded your service account credentials as a JSON file, you can set up your module:

Configuration optionsedit
- module: google_workspace
  saml:
    enabled: true
    var.jwt_file: "./credentials_file.json"
    var.delegated_account: "user@example.com"
  user_accounts:
    enabled: true
    var.jwt_file: "./credentials_file.json"
    var.delegated_account: "user@example.com"
  login:
    enabled: true
    var.jwt_file: "./credentials_file.json"
    var.delegated_account: "user@example.com"
  admin:
    enabled: true
    var.jwt_file: "./credentials_file.json"
    var.delegated_account: "user@example.com"
  drive:
    enabled: true
    var.jwt_file: "./credentials_file.json"
    var.delegated_account: "user@example.com"
  groups:
    enabled: true
    var.jwt_file: "./credentials_file.json"
    var.delegated_account: "user@example.com"

Every fileset has the following configuration options:

var.jwt_file
Specifies the path to the JWT credentials file.
var.delegated_account
Email of the admin user used to access the API.
var.http_client_timeout
Duration of the time limit on HTTP requests made by the module. Defaults to 60s.
var.interval
Duration between requests to the API. Defaults to 2h.

Google Workspace defaults to a 2 hour polling interval because Google reports can go from some minutes up to 3 days of delay. For more details on this, you can read more here.

var.user_key
Specifies the user key to fetch reports from. Defaults to all.
var.initial_interval
It will poll events up to this time period when the module starts. This is to prevent polling too many or repeated events on module restarts. Defaults to 24h.
