Connect to Stackdriver

Updated 3 months ago by Michael Cretzman

Connect Harness to Stackdriver to have Harness verify the success of your deployments and monitor 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.
