Offering datasets

Dataset pages are a quick and easy way to provide datasets for your customers or users of Google Cloud to use.

Technical requirements

  • You must sign up to become a Google Cloud partner. Learn about the requirements to become a partner.
  • Your Google Cloud project name. If you haven't already done so, create a project. We recommend YOUR_ORGANIZATION-dataset as your projectID.
  • Complete the project info form that the Google Cloud Marketplace team sends you.
  • You must have a logo or icon for the Google Cloud Marketplace listing, in the PNG format. The background of the logo must be transparent, and not contain any text within it.

Resource requirements

Google: Partner Manager

Partner (your organization): Product Manager or Product Marketing Lead

Roles and responsibilities

Google's Partner Manager: Assists partner with signing Google Cloud partnership agreement. Provides guidance on the marketing content. Also approves the content before it goes live. If you do not yet have an assigned Partner Manager, send questions and/or completed requirements to gcp-partner-org@google.com.

Partner's Marketing Lead: Responsible for creating content for Google Cloud Marketplace product page and landing page.

Expected customer experience

Your customer experience should be consistent with the browse/select/deploy buying experience on Google Cloud Marketplace. We want customers to get started with the product with minimal friction.

Your dataset listing on Google Cloud Marketplace must ensure that users coming to the Google Cloud Marketplace dataset page are able to clearly understand the offering, including service plans, their benefits, and cost, as applicable.

Onboarding process

The onboarding process begins after the requirements are met. The steps are as follows:

  1. You provide a partner description, project ID, and other information to Google.
  2. A Google Partner Engineer creates your partner entity in the Google Cloud Marketplace system.
  3. The Google Partner Engineer allowlists the Partner Portal in your project.
  4. You create a product, and enter its content in the product fields. This includes information such as the pricing plans and details, a description of the service being provided, the icon to be shown on the SaaS page, and so on.
  5. You submit the page for review. Your Google Partner Engineer and Google Partner Manager are automatically notified via email.
  6. A Google Partner Manager or Google Partner Engineer reviews the content and approves the page. After it has been approved, the dataset page goes live within 10 minutes.

If your product is rejected, you can update the content with the changes requested by the Google Partner Manager or Google Partner Engineer, and then re-submit the page.
