Quickstart: Using the IAM methods from the Resource Manager API

This page shows you how to get started with the IAM methods from the Resource Manager API in your favorite programming language.

Before you begin

Create a Google Cloud project

For this quickstart, you need a new Google Cloud project.

  1. Sign in to your Google Cloud account. If you're new to Google Cloud, create an account to evaluate how our products perform in real-world scenarios. New customers also get $300 in free credits to run, test, and deploy workloads.
  2. In the Google Cloud Console, on the project selector page, click Create project to begin creating a new Google Cloud project.

    Go to project selector

  3. Enable the Resource Manager API.

    Enable the API

  4. Create a service account:

    1. In the Cloud Console, go to the Create service account page.

      Go to Create service account
    2. Select a project.
    3. In the Service account name field, enter a name. The Cloud Console fills in the Service account ID field based on this name.

      In the Service account description field, enter a description. For example, Service account for quickstart.

    4. Click Create and continue.
    5. Click the Select a role field.

      Under Quick access, click Basic, then click Owner.

    6. Click Continue.
    7. Click Done to finish creating the service account.

      Do not close your browser window. You will use it in the next step.

  5. Create a service account key:

    1. In the Cloud Console, click the email address for the service account that you created.
    2. Click Keys.
    3. Click Add key, then click Create new key.
    4. Click Create. A JSON key file is downloaded to your computer.
    5. Click Close.
  6. Set the environment variable GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS to the path of the JSON file that contains your service account key. This variable only applies to your current shell session, so if you open a new session, set the variable again.

  7. In the Google Cloud Console, on the project selector page, click Create project to begin creating a new Google Cloud project.

    Go to project selector

  8. Enable the Resource Manager API.

    Enable the API

  9. Create a service account:

    1. In the Cloud Console, go to the Create service account page.

      Go to Create service account
    2. Select a project.
    3. In the Service account name field, enter a name. The Cloud Console fills in the Service account ID field based on this name.

      In the Service account description field, enter a description. For example, Service account for quickstart.

    4. Click Create and continue.
    5. Click the Select a role field.

      Under Quick access, click Basic, then click Owner.

    6. Click Continue.
    7. Click Done to finish creating the service account.

      Do not close your browser window. You will use it in the next step.

  10. Create a service account key:

    1. In the Cloud Console, click the email address for the service account that you created.
    2. Click Keys.
    3. Click Add key, then click Create new key.
    4. Click Create. A JSON key file is downloaded to your computer.
    5. Click Close.
  11. Set the environment variable GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS to the path of the JSON file that contains your service account key. This variable only applies to your current shell session, so if you open a new session, set the variable again.

Install the client library

Read, modify, and write an IAM policy

The code snippet in this quickstart does the following:

  • Initializes the Resource Manager service, which manages Google Cloud projects.
  • Reads the IAM policy for your project.
  • Modifies the IAM policy by granting the Log Writer role (roles/logging.logWriter) to your Google Account.
  • Writes the updated IAM policy.
  • Prints all the principals that have the Log Writer role (roles/logging.logWriter) at the project level.
  • Revokes the Log Writer role.

Replace the following values before running the code snippet:

  • your-project: The ID of your project.
  • your-member: The email address for your Google Account, with the prefix user:. For example, user:tanya@example.com.
