Reproducing the integer count of black hole microstates from the gravitational path integral is an important problem in quantum gravity. In this talk I will show that, by using supersymmetric localization, the gravitational path integral for 1/8-BPS black holes in N=8 supergravity reproduces the index obtained in the string theory construction of such black holes, including all non-perturbatively suppressed geometries.
