To identify the Google Cloud Storage (GCS) URI from your Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Developers Console, follow these steps:
Sign in to your Google Cloud account: Go to https://console.cloud.google.com/ and log in with your Google account credentials.
- Select a project: If you have multiple projects, choose the project where your GCS bucket is located using the project dropdown menu at the top of the page.
- Access the Cloud Storage: In the left-hand menu, click on the “Navigation menu” (the three horizontal lines) and then click on “Storage” under the “Storage” section.
- Find your bucket: You should now see a list of your GCS buckets. Locate the bucket in that you want to find the URI. You can also use the search bar to filter the results.
Get the URI: The GCS URI for a bucket is in the format gs://[BUCKET_NAME]/[OBJECT_NAME]. The bucket name is listed in the “Name” column of the storage browser.
To get the URI for the entire bucket, you can use the gs://[BUCKET_NAME]/.
To get the URI for a specific object within the bucket, click on the name and then navigate to the desired object. The object name will be listed in the “Name” column, and you can construct the URI as gs://[BUCKET_NAME]/[OBJECT_NAME].
For example, if your bucket is named my-example-bucket and you have a file named sample.txt inside that bucket, the GCS URI for the file would be gs://my-example-bucket/sample.txt.
Remember that you need proper authentication and permissions to access or manage the GCS resources.
