Configuring your Google Cloud project

To install GKE on-prem, you must have a Google Cloud project. This page shows how to configure your Cloud project.

Logging in

Log in to Google Cloud using your account credentials:

gcloud auth login

Setting a default project ID

Set a default project ID:

gcloud config set project [PROJECT_ID]

where [PROJECT_ID] is your project ID.

Now that you have a default project ID, you won't have to include the --project flag in your gcloud commands.
