Find and apply recommendations with the Recommendation Hub

This page shows you how to use Recommendation Hub to find and apply recommendations.

Before you begin

For this quickstart, you need a Google Cloud project.

  1. Go to the Google Cloud console.

  2. Select a Google Cloud project, folder, or organization.

    You can only see recommendations at an organization or folder level if you have permissions for that organization or folder, regardless of your permissions for folders or projects within it.

  3. Ensure you have sufficient Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions to view the project's recommendations. If you don't have sufficient permission, you might not be able to view some recommendations, and the Recommendation Hub might appear empty. Grant or request the Recommender Viewer Role or see recommenders for permissions for each recommendation.
