Version 1.5

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.

Enabling the required APIs in your project

Enable the required APIs in your Google Cloud project:

Linux and macOS

gcloud services enable \
    anthos.googleapis.com \
    anthosgke.googleapis.com \
    anthosaudit.googleapis.com \
    cloudresourcemanager.googleapis.com \
    container.googleapis.com \
    gkeconnect.googleapis.com \
    gkehub.googleapis.com \
    serviceusage.googleapis.com \
    stackdriver.googleapis.com \
    monitoring.googleapis.com \
    logging.googleapis.com

Windows

gcloud services enable ^
    anthos.googleapis.com ^
    anthosgke.googleapis.com ^
    anthosaudit.googleapis.com ^
    cloudresourcemanager.googleapis.com ^
    container.googleapis.com ^
    gkeconnect.googleapis.com ^
    gkehub.googleapis.com ^
    serviceusage.googleapis.com ^
    stackdriver.googleapis.com ^
    monitoring.googleapis.com ^
    logging.googleapis.com

Enabling anthos.googleapis.com might incur charges. See the Pricing guide for details.

Creating a Cloud Monitoring Workspace

Cloud Monitoring is enabled by default for GKE on-prem. For Monitoring to function properly, you need to create a Cloud Monitoring Workspace.

To learn how to create a workspace, see Creating a Workspace.
