Authentication

Google Cloud uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Google Cloud account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Google Cloud APIs in both code and no-code steps.

When you create a service account in GCP, you'll be asked to generate a service account key. Create that key and download the key details in JSON format.

Open the key JSON in a text editor, then copy and paste its contents here.
