Enter the GCP Values in Virtana Platform

You must connect your GCP account with Virtana Platform, so that Virtana Platform can access and process GCP data.

Note

Support for GCP is currently an Early Access feature. It is available to all Virtana Cloud Cost Management customers. Contact your Account Representative or cloudcostsavings@virtana.com to enable GCP for your account.
