Cloud KMS client libraries

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.

Installing 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 -u "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>23.1.0</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:23.1.0')

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" % "2.2.2"

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"

Setting up authentication

To run the client library, you must first set up authentication. One way to do that is to create a service account and set an environment variable, as shown in the following steps. For other ways to authenticate, see Authenticating as a service account.

Cloud Console

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.

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.

Command line

You can run the following commands using the Cloud SDK on your local machine, or in Cloud Shell.

  1. Create the service account. Replace NAME with a name for the service account.

    gcloud iam service-accounts create NAME
  2. Grant permissions to the service account. Replace PROJECT_ID with your project ID.

    gcloud projects add-iam-policy-binding PROJECT_ID --member="serviceAccount:NAME@PROJECT_ID.iam.gserviceaccount.com" --role="roles/owner"
  3. Generate the key file. Replace FILE_NAME with a name for the key file.

    gcloud iam service-accounts keys create FILE_NAME.json --iam-account=NAME@PROJECT_ID.iam.gserviceaccount.com

Provide authentication credentials to your application code by setting the environment variable GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS. This variable only applies to your current shell session, so if you open a new session, set the variable again.

Linux or macOS

export GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS="KEY_PATH"

Replace KEY_PATH with the path of the JSON file that contains your service account key.

For example:

export GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS="/home/user/Downloads/service-account-file.json"

Windows

For PowerShell:

$env:GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS="KEY_PATH"

Replace KEY_PATH with the path of the JSON file that contains your service account key.

For example:

$env:GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS="C:\Users\username\Downloads\service-account-file.json"

For command prompt:

set GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS=KEY_PATH

Replace KEY_PATH with the path of the JSON file that contains your service account key.

Using 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)
        }
    }
}
