The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) provider for Pulumi can be used to provision any of the cloud resources available in GCP. The GCP provider must be configured with credentials to deploy and update resources in Google Cloud.
See the full API documentation for complete details of the available GCP provider APIs.
The GCP provider supports several options for providing access to Google Cloud credentials. See GCP setup page for details.
The quickest way to get started with GCP is to follow the Get Started guide.
Additionally, a tutorial is available to follow:
- Virtual Machine: Create a Debian virtual machine web server instance
In addition to the tutorial, several interesting examples are available complete with instructions:
- Google Cloud Functions: Create a serverless function
- Google Kubernetes Engine: Create a GKE cluster and deploy an NGINX pod into it
- Ruby on Rails on GKE and Google Cloud SQL: Containerized Ruby on Rails app using Google Cloud SQL PostgresSQL, GKE and Docker Hub.
const gcp = require("@pulumi/gcp") const bucket = new gcp.storage.Bucket("my-bucket");
You can find additional examples of using Google Cloud in the Pulumi examples repo.
The following packages are available in packager managers:
The CGP provider is open source and available in the pulumi/pulumi-gcp repo.
The GCP provider accepts the following configuration settings. These can be provided to the default GCP provider via
pulumi config set gcp:<option>, or passed to the constructor of
new gcp.Provider to construct a specific instance of the GCP provider.
