Step 8: Enable Synchronizer access

Get an authorization token

To make the Apigee API calls described later in this topic, you need to get an authorization token that has the Apigee Organization Admin role.

  1. If you are not the owner of the Google Cloud project that is associated with your Apigee hybrid organization, be sure that your GCP user account has the roles/apigee.admin (Apigee Organization Admin) role. You can check the roles assigned to you with this command:
    gcloud projects get-iam-policy $PROJECT_ID  \
    --flatten="bindings[].members" \
    --format='table(bindings.role)' \

    For example:

    gcloud projects get-iam-policy my-project  \
    --flatten="bindings[].members" \
    --format='table(bindings.role)' \

    The output should look something like:

  2. If you do not have roles/apigee.admin in your roles, add the Apigee Organization Admin role to your user account. Use the following command to add the role to your user account:
    gcloud projects add-iam-policy-binding $PROJECT_ID \
      --member user:your_account_email \
      --role roles/apigee.admin

    For example:

    gcloud projects add-iam-policy-binding my-project \
      --member \
      --role roles/apigee.admin
  3. Get an authorization token for your user account:
    export TOKEN=$(gcloud auth print-access-token)

    You can check the $TOKEN environment variable with the following command:

    echo $TOKEN

Enable synchronizer access

To enable synchronizer access:

  1. Get the email address for the service account to which you are granting synchronizer access. For non production environments (as suggested in this tutorial) it should be apigee-non-prod. For production environments, it shoudl be apigee-synchronizer. Use the following command:
    gcloud iam service-accounts list --filter "apigee-non-prod"

    If it matches the pattern apigee-non-prod@$, you can use that pattern in the next step.

  2. Call the setSyncAuthorization API to enable the required permissions for Synchronizer using the following command:
    curl -X POST -H "Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN" \
      -H "Content-Type:application/json" \
      "$ORG_NAME:setSyncAuthorization" \
       -d '{"identities":["'"serviceAccount:apigee-non-prod@$"'"]}'


    • $ORG_NAME: The name of your hybrid organization.
    • apigee-non-prod$ The email address of the service account.
  3. To verify that the service account was set, use the following command to call the API to get a list of service accounts:
    curl -X POST -H "Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN" \
      -H "Content-Type:application/json" \
      "$ORG_NAME:getSyncAuthorization" \
       -d ''

    The output looks similar to the following:


You have now made it possible for your Apigee hybrid runtime and management planes to communicate. Next, let's apply your configuration to the hybrid runtime and complete your installation of Apigee hybrid.
