Opal lets your developers find and request access to GCP buckets. In this article we'll walk you through how to add GCP buckets to your Opal dashboard.

Step 1: Navigate to Cloud Storage

Access the Cloud Storage browser using this link or find it by navigating to Cloud Storage in the search bar.

Step 2: Label your bucket

Opal only adds permissions for buckets that you label with opal. To do this, add a label to your bucket in the Cloud Storage dashboard:

Accessing a bucket in Opal

If you successfully labeled your bucket in GCP, the new bucket resource will show up in the Resources page.

If you already have access to the bucket in GCP, through Opal or otherwise, you'll see a Connected label in the top right corner of the resource. The access levels to this bucket are granted to the GCP user that matches your email address.
