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.

  1. Create a service account in GCP and set the permissions you need for Pipedream workflows.

  2. Generate a service account key

  3. Download the key details in JSON format

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