This page shows how to get started with the Cloud Client Libraries for the Cloud Key Management Service API. Read more about the client libraries for Cloud APIs in Client Libraries Explained.

Install the client library

C#

For more information, see Setting Up a C# Development Environment.

Using PowerShell or the Visual Studio Package Manager Console:

Install-Package "Google.Cloud.Kms.V1" -Version "2.0.0-beta03"

Using the dotnet CLI:

dotnet add package "Google.Cloud.Kms.V1" -Version "2.0.0-beta03"

Go

For more information, see Setting Up a Go Development Environment.

go get "cloud.google.com/go/kms/apiv1"

Java

For more information, see Setting Up a Java Development Environment.

If you are using Maven, add the following to your pom.xml file. For more information about BOMs, see The Google Cloud Platform Libraries BOM.

<dependencyManagement>
  <dependencies>
    <dependency>
      <groupId>com.google.cloud</groupId>
      <artifactId>libraries-bom</artifactId>
      <version>26.1.4</version>
      <type>pom</type>
      <scope>import</scope>
    </dependency>
  </dependencies>
</dependencyManagement>

<dependencies>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.google.cloud</groupId>
    <artifactId>google-cloud-kms</artifactId>
  </dependency>
</dependencies>

If you are using Gradle, add the following to your dependencies:

implementation platform('com.google.cloud:libraries-bom:26.1.4')

implementation 'com.google.cloud:google-cloud-kms'

If you are using sbt, add the following to your dependencies:

libraryDependencies += "com.google.cloud" % "google-cloud-kms" % "2.8.0"

If you're using Visual Studio Code, IntelliJ, or Eclipse, you can add client libraries to your project using the following IDE plugins:

The plugins provide additional functionality, such as key management for service accounts. Refer to each plugin's documentation for details.

Node.js

For more information, see Setting Up a Node.js Development Environment.

npm install --save "@google-cloud/kms"

PHP

For more information, see Using PHP on Google Cloud.

composer require "google/cloud-kms"

Python

For more information, see Setting Up a Python Development Environment.

pip install --upgrade "google-cloud-kms"

Ruby

For more information, see Setting Up a Ruby Development Environment.

gem install "google-cloud-kms"

Set up authentication

When you use client libraries, you use Application Default Credentials (ADC) to authenticate. For information about setting up ADC, see Provide credentials for Application Default Credentials. For information about using ADC with client libraries, see Authenticate using client libraries.

Use the client library

The following example shows how to use the client library.

C#

To learn how to install and use the client library for Cloud KMS, see Cloud KMS client libraries. For more information, see the Cloud KMS C# API reference documentation.


using Google.Api.Gax.ResourceNames;
using Google.Cloud.Kms.V1;

public class QuickstartSample
{
    public void Quickstart(string projectId = "my-project", string locationId = "us-east1")
    {
        // Create a Cloud KMS client.
        KeyManagementServiceClient client = KeyManagementServiceClient.Create();

        // Build the parent location name.
        LocationName locationName = new LocationName(projectId, locationId);

        // Iterate over and print each key ring name;
        foreach (KeyRing keyRing in client.ListKeyRings(locationName))
        {
            // ... (e.g. keyRing.Name)
        }
    }
}

Go
