Creating a Service Account

Each project has a service account associated with it. You can create a service account for your project in the Google Cloud Platform Console. When you create a service account, you obtain a key in P12 file format that can be used for authentication.

The high-level steps to create a service account are as follows:

  1. Create a service account.

    For instructions on creating a service account and obtaining a P12 key type, go to Google Developers website, Creating a service account.

  2. Save your PKCS12 key securely and remember its location. You will need this location when you create an App.
  3. Delegate domain-wide authority to the service account.
