Cloud Bigtable OAuth scopes

This page lists the OAuth scopes that enable other Google Cloud Platform resources to connect to Cloud Bigtable.

Some GCP products, such as Compute Engine and Cloud Dataflow, have the ability to connect to Cloud Bigtable if you set them up with the correct permissions. To make this work, you need to specify the appropriate OAuth scopes when you create resources such as Compute Engine virtual machine instances. Be sure to enable access to Cloud Bigtable when you create your resource.

When you set up your resources for a GCP product, choose the most restrictive scopes that will support your application's requirements. You cannot change the scopes after you create a resource.

Cloud Bigtable supports the following scopes:
