About This Task

You need to gather the billing account ID, BigQuery dataset name, project name, and service account ID from the Google Cloud Console and enter it in Virtana Platform. So both GCP and Virtana Platform need to be open in separate browser windows.


You must have completed the tasks described in GCP Configuration Prerequisites.


  1. Open the Virtana Platform (VP) console and navigate to Settings > Integrations > Cloud Providers and click the GCP card or click Add Integration.

    The Setup New GCP Integration form displays.
