Step 0: Verify GCP prerequisites

Before getting started with the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) onboarding quickstart, review and acknowledge the following:

  • This GCP onboarding quickstart is intended for simple CDP evaluation deployments only. It may not work for scenarios where GCP resources such as VPC network, firewall rules, storage accounts, and so on, are pre-created or GCP accounts have restrictions in place.

  • Users running the GCP onboarding quickstart should have CDP Admin role or Power User role in CDP subscription.

  • The following APIs should be enabled in the project that you would like to use to run the quickstart: GCP APIs.

  • In order to run the quickstart, the Google APIs service agent user must be set to Owner. For instructions on how to check or update the Google APIs service agent permissions, see Grant permissions to the Google APIs service account.

  • This GCP onboarding quickstart uses a Deployment Manager template that automatically creates the required resources such as the VPC network, firewall rules, storage buckets, service accounts, and so on.

  • CDP Public Cloud relies on several GCP services that should be available and enabled in your project of choice. Verify if you have enough quota for each GCP service to set up CDP. See list of GCP resources used by CDP.
