Subject [jira] [Created] (AIRFLOW-1635) Allow creating Google Cloud Platform connection without requiring a JSON file
Date Sat, 23 Sep 2017 02:53:00 GMT

-----------------------------------

             Summary: Allow creating Google Cloud Platform connection without requiring a
JSON file
                 Key: AIRFLOW-1635
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AIRFLOW-1635
             Project: Apache Airflow
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: gcp
    Affects Versions: 1.8.2
            Reporter: Barry Hart


Most connection types can be created purely from the Airflow UI. Google Cloud Platform connections
do not support this, because they require a JSON file to be present on disk. This is awkward
for users who only have UI access (i.e. no direct access to the server's file system) because
it requires coordination with a system administrator to add or update a connection.

I have prototyped a workaround which allows pasting the JSON file *contents* into the key_path
field. It works, but probably needs some additional thought since it is potentially confusing
entering something that is not a path into that field.
