Access Google Vault audit logs alongside other Workspace audit logs

What’s changing

We’re excited to announce the general availability of an improved Google Vault audit log experience. As a result of this change, you can now find Vault audit logs in the Admin console alongside other Google Workspace apps like Gmail, Google Drive, and more. Beginning in January, Vault audit logs can be accessed by the Reports API, which you can use to actively monitor your domain’s Vault usage. We’ll share more information here on the Workspace Updates blog when this functionality becomes available.

Aligning the location and functionality of Vault audit logs with other Workspace apps creates a consistent experience for admins and reduces the need to search for information in various locations. It also enables audit logs in the admin console to be compliant with our new regionalized data processing capabilities.

Additional details

The duration, access and visibility of Vault audit logs will remain the same and will continue to require the “manage audits” permission. The Vault audit logs can be accessed through the Vault reports and matter audits links as well as from the Admin Console. Visit the Help Center to learn more about setting up Vault privileges.
