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.


  1. Create a service account.

    For instructions about 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 the key location.

    You require the key location later when you create an app.
