Are you wondering how to
add users to your Google Cloud Platform projects?
Over time, as your website grows in popularity, you will likely want to add administrators to your account to make changes to your website. But what is the best way to
add user accounts to your Google Cloud Platform project?
In this tutorial you will learn how to
add user accounts to your project on Google Cloud Platform using best practices.
Before starting this tutorial, you should have already
created a website project on Google Cloud Platform.
So let’s get started.
There are 3 steps in this tutorial:
1. Add New User
2. Accept Invitation
3. Access Project
From your Google Cloud Platform dashboard, navigate to IAM & Admin > IAM.
Next, click the “ADD” icon at the top of the page to add a new user to your project.
In the “Members” field, enter the Gmail address of the user you want to add to your project. In the “Roles” field, select the permissions that you will grant to the user. If you give them owner permissions, they will have unlimited access to your Google Cloud Platform website project.
Finally, click the “ADD” button to send the user an invitation email to join your project.
Once the invitation has been sent, the owner of the Gmail user account that you added must accept the invitation.
In the example above, the account “ [email protected]” was added as a user for the project. Therefor, the user “ [email protected]” will have to open their Gmail inbox and follow the link in the invitation email in order to accept the invitation.
After the user clicks the link in the invitation email, they will be re-directed to the Google Cloud Dashboard and will be asked to either “DECLINE” or “ACCEPT INVITATION”.
If the user chooses “ACCEPT INVITATION” they will be re-directed to the Google Cloud Platform project’s dashboard page. From here, they will be allowed to access your project according to the permissions they were granted. That’s it!
Now that you’ve added a new user to your project, the user can login to your Google Cloud Platform project by using the Google/Gmail login information. It couldn’t be simpler!
