Subject [jira] [Created] (LIBCLOUD-900) Instructions for connecting to Google Compute Engine missing a scope step
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2017 17:21:44 GMT
Dylan Semler created LIBCLOUD-900:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: Instructions for connecting to Google Compute Engine missing a scope
step
                 Key: LIBCLOUD-900
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LIBCLOUD-900
             Project: Libcloud
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
            Reporter: Dylan Semler
            Priority: Trivial


The instructions for using libcloud with GCE cloud storage[1] are quite good, except they
appear to be missing a step.  If you follow the instructions using a Service Account and then
follow the first example, you will get an error

{noformat} 
GoogleBaseError: {'domain': 'global', 'reason': 'forbidden', 'message': "Required 'compute.zones.list'
permission for 'projects/<project id>'"}
{noformat}

The user needs to take an additional step to provide the newly-created service account permission
to list the compute zones.  I don't know if there are other ways to achieve this, but one
way is to go to IAM & Admin -> IAM (on the left menu panel) -> ADD. Fill in your
new service account in the Members field and then select the role Compute Engine -> Compute
Network Viewer.
