Google Cloud Storage

Connect to Google Cloud Storage

  1. In the Big Data Tools window, click Add a connection and select Google Cloud Storage.

  2. In the Big Data Tools dialog that opens, specify the connection parameters:

    Connection settings for Google Cloud Storage
    • Name: the name of the connection to distinguish it between the other connections.

    • Choose the way to get buckets:

      • Select Custom roots and, in the Roots field, specify the name of the bucket or the path to a directory in the bucket. You can specify multiple names or paths by separating them with a comma.

      • Select All buckets in the account. You can then use the bucket filter to show only buckets with particular names.

    • In the Authentication type list, select an authentication method:

      • GCloud Account: this will open your browser where you can sign in to your Google account. Once authenticated, select the Project ID.

      • Credential File: enter a path to the credential JSON file.

      • Anonymous: select if you want to sign in anonymously, for example, to public buckets.

    Optionally, you can set up:

    • Per project: select to enable these connection settings only for the current project. Deselect it if you want this connection to be visible in other projects.

    • Enable connection: deselect if you want to disable this connection. By default, the newly created connections are enabled.

    • Proxy: select if you want to use IDE proxy settings or if you want to specify custom proxy settings.

    • Extended Connection Settings | Custom host: enter your custom endpoint URL, for example, if you want to use it to mock a Google Cloud Storage server.

  3. Once you fill in the settings, click Test connection to ensure that all configuration parameters are correct. Then click OK.

Once you have established a connection, you can view the storage and work with data files in it.
