Google Drive Setup: Create a Service Account

Make sure your project you just created is selected in the Projects menu just right of ‘Google APIs.’  Then click on the main menu.

Select IAM & admin > Service accounts:


Create a service account:

Enter an account name and optional description. The account ID will be automatically generated.



After you create the service account you’ll need to create a key.

Make sure you check on the radio button for your json private key.  You can leave the Role unspecified.

Click Create and the json will download. Store it in a secure place, as you will need it later in the setup.

Next Step:  Enable the APIs
