Set up Google Cloud

Before deploying to Google Cloud you need to set up Google Cloud correctly to be able to control, create and destroy resources using API requests.

This document is a step by step cookbook on how to set up Google Cloud this way.

For these steps you will need to install gcloud command tool, you can install it by yourself by these instructions, or you can use shopsys/kubernetes-buildpack where is gcloud tool already installed.

If you choose to use kubernetes-buildpack, start buildpack container like this

docker run -it shopsys/kubernetes-buildpack sh

1. Create a user

Create a user on Google Cloud. Read more here

2. Create a project.

Create a project on Google Cloud. Read more here

3. Obtain Google Cloud parameters and service-account.json

  1. service-account.json, read more here

  2. Project id

  3. Your login name to Google Cloud

Save these variables, they will be used later, now you can configure your Google Cloud account

Configure Google Cloud account

First of all you need to login and verify your account, execute this and follow instructions outputted to your console:

project-name used as a variable is project id obtained before.

gcloud auth login

Create new Google Cloud project:

gcloud projects create --set-as-default --name <project-name>

Now we need to link our billing account for google to be able to create services that are paid.

List your billing accounts:

gcloud beta billing accounts list

Select one and link project to a billing account:

gcloud beta billing projects link <project-name> --billing-account <billing-account-id>

Create service account and key for Terraform:

gcloud iam service-accounts create terraform --display-name "Terraform admin account"
gcloud projects add-iam-policy-binding <project-name> --member serviceAccount:[email protected]<project-name>.iam.gserviceaccount.com --role roles/owner
gcloud iam service-accounts keys create service-account.json --iam-account [email protected]<project-name>.iam.gserviceaccount.com

Create service account for Google Cloud Storage account

gcloud iam service-accounts create gcs-service-account --display-name "GCS admin account"
gcloud projects add-iam-policy-binding <project-name> --member serviceAccount:[email protected]<project-name>.iam.gserviceaccount.com --role roles/storage.admin

Enable Google Cloud APIs that are used for deploy

gcloud services enable cloudbilling.googleapis.com
gcloud services enable cloudresourcemanager.googleapis.com
gcloud services enable iam.googleapis.com
gcloud services enable compute.googleapis.com
gcloud services enable sqladmin.googleapis.com
gcloud services enable container.googleapis.com
gcloud services enable redis.googleapis.com

Now your Google Account should be ready for deploy.

Now you can follow to Deploy Your Application to Google Cloud on Your CI/CD
