Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs

Overview

People new to Google Cloud Platform need to understand IAM to fully understand how to configure the necessary permissions for their workloads. This lab looks at three common areas learners should understand with regards to IAM and gcloud. These are the installation and configuration of the gcloud environment, the use of multiple gloud configurations, and the use of services accounts.

In this lab you will use the gcloud CLI tool to setup and configure command features of Cloud Identity and Access Management (IAM).

What you'll do

  • Install and configure the gcloud client

  • Create and switch between multiple IAM configurations

  • Identify and assign correct IAM permissions

  • Create and use a service account

Starting Environment

You start with two user accounts and two projects; user1 is the "owner" of both projects and user2 is the "viewer" of only the first project. There is a Linux virtual machine (vm) running in the first project.
