Logikcull’s Google Vault integration with Legal Holds eliminates the additional steps involved in creating holds in Google Vault when you send out legal hold notices.

Permissions needed to use the Google Vault integration

  • Logikcull: Account admin

  • Google Vault: Manage Matters and Manage Holds. More information on Vault permissions can be reviewed here.

Using the Google Vault integration in Logikcull

  1. Click on Create a new Legal Hold

  2. After you select your custodians in Step 3, you’ll see a Preserve Data step.

  3. On the Preserve Data step, toggle the Google Vault option at the top right of the window.

  4. If it’s your first time using the Google Vault integration you’ll be asked to log into the Google account you want to connect to. Once connected, you’ll be asked to grant Logikcull access to your Google Vault account. Make sure you check all three boxes before you continue.

  5. Select or create a Google Vault Matter. If you already have a Google Vault Matter for your legal holds, you can select an existing Matter; otherwise, enter a Matter name and Logikcull will create a new Matter in Google Vault for you.

  6. Dates. You have the option to select a preservation start and end date.

  7. Services. Select the Google Workspace services you want to preserve.

What happens in Google Vault?

  • If you did not select an existing Google Vault Matter, Logikcull will create a new Matter in Vault.

  • Logikcull will create a legal hold in the Vault Matter for each service selected. Logikcull created legal holds will be named “Logikcull: [Project name] - [service]”

  • You can open the “Data” section of a custodian to see which services were preserved, and/or which services, if any, failed to preserve (which may happen if a custodian is not in the data source or if a hold with the same name exists in the matter).

What else do I need to know?

  • Changes made in Google Vault will not be reflected in Logikcull. If you need to add a custodian or release a legal hold, you should make these changes in Logikcull and Logikcull will send updates to Google Vault.

  • Releasing or deleting your Logikcull Legal Hold will delete your legal holds in Google Vault. Note that Logikcull will not delete the Google Vault matter.
