> 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 propose that Airflow offer two ways to set up a Google cloud connection:
> * The current method of placing a file on disk and entering its path.
> * New method where the Airflow user/administrator pastes the JSON *contents* into the
Airflow UI. This will be a new field in the UI.
> If both a path and JSON data are provided, the path will take precedence. This is somewhat
arbitrary; typically only one field would contain a value.
