1 – Stackdriver Connection Setup

Updated 2 weeks ago by Michael Cretzman

Connect Harness to Stackdriver to have Harness verify the success of your deployments and live microservices. Harness will use your tools for verification and monitoring and use its machine learning features to identify sources of failures.

Most APM and logging tools are added to Harness as Verification Providers. For Stackdriver, you use the Google Cloud Platform account set up as a Harness Cloud Provider.

Roles and Permissions

The following roles must be attached to the account used to connect Harness and Stackdriver as a Google Cloud Provider:

  • Stackdriver Logs - The minimum role requirement is logging.viewer
  • Stackdriver Metrics - The minimum role requirements are compute.networkViewer and monitoring.viewer.

See Access control from Google.
