Before you begin using Cloud Volumes Service

You must have the Billing Administrator role (roles/billing admin) and complete a series of one-time tasks per project and VPC to create a connection from the user's environment to the Cloud Volumes Service.

  1. In the Cloud Console, on the project selector page, select or create a Google Cloud project.

    Go to the project selector page

  2. Make sure that billing is enabled for your project. Learn how to confirm that billing is enabled for your project.

  3. In the Cloud Console, open Cloud Shell.

    Open Cloud Shell
  4. In Cloud Shell, run the following command to determine whether the Service Networking API and the Service Management API are enabled in your project:

    gcloud --project=my-cvs-prj services list

    If the APIs are not listed in the output, then they are not enabled.

  5. If the Service Networking API and the Service Management API are not already enabled, then run the following commands in Cloud Shell to enable them:

        gcloud --project=my-cvs-prj services enable servicenetworking.googleapis.com
        gcloud --project=my-cvs-prj services enable servicemanagement.googleapis.com

    For more information, see Service Networking API and Service Management API.
