Log ingestion pipelines help you manage and transform incoming logs. Use existing tools to collect and send logs to Cloud Observability. Then transform those logs with log ingestion pipelines, securing and optimizing the logs you see in Cloud Observability.

Cloud Observability’s log ingestion pipelines help you do the following:

  • Centralize log management, processing logs from several sources in one UI.
  • Keep only the logs you need, controlling storage costs.
  • Secure data by removing sensitive information from incoming logs.

Key features

  • Customized pipelines: Create pipelines for specific data sources or unify log management with one pipeline.
  • Supported tools: Use ingestion pipelines on logs from OpenTelemetry (OTel) or Datadog.
  • Transformations: Process and parse logs with transformations, including Drop matching, Keep matching, and Parse JSON.
