Create Service Connection from Azure DevOps to GCP Artifact Registry

0 votes

Are there any tutorials for creating a service account for the GCP Artifact Registry?

I have tried this: but it uses GCP Container Registry.

I get this error because of this difference.

##[error]denied: Permission "artifactregistry.repositories.downloadArtifacts" denied on resource.

But the service account I created has the permissions needed (albeit those roles are in beta). I even gave it a very elevated role and still getting this.

when I created the service connect I followed these steps from the documentation linked above:

Any advice would be appreciated.

Creating a service account for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Artifact Registry involves a few steps, including creating a service account, granting necessary permissions, and optionally configuring roles for the service account. While there might not be specific tutorials dedicated solely to creating a service account for GCP Artifact Registry, you can follow general tutorials for creating service accounts in GCP and then adjust the permissions accordingly for Artifact Registry. Here's a step-by-step guide:

  1. Create a Service Account:

    • Go to the Google Cloud Console:
    • Navigate to the IAM & Admin > Service accounts page.
    • Click on "Create Service Account".
    • Enter a name and description for your service account.
    • Click on "Create".
  2. Assign Roles:

    • After creating the service account, you'll be prompted to grant it roles. At a minimum, you'll need to grant the necessary roles to interact with GCP Artifact Registry.
    • The roles you might consider include:
      • Artifact Registry Reader: Allows read access to repositories.
      • Artifact Registry Writer: Allows write access to repositories.
      • Artifact Registry Administrator: Allows full control over repositories.
    • Click on "Continue" to proceed with assigning roles.
  3. Generate a Key:

    • Once the roles are assigned, you'll be prompted to create a key for the service account.
    • Choose the key type (JSON is recommended) and click on "Create". This will download the key file to your local machine.
  4. Configure Access Control for Artifact Registry:

    • Now that you have the service account and key file, you need to configure access control for GCP Artifact Registry.
    • Navigate to the Artifact Registry page in the Google Cloud Console.
    • Select the repository for which you want to grant access.
    • Click on "Add members" and enter the email address of the service account you created.
    • Choose the appropriate role(s) (e.g., Reader, Writer, Administrator) for the service account.
    • Click on "Save".
  5. Use the Service Account Key:

    • Finally, you can use the downloaded service account key file in your applications or scripts to authenticate with GCP Artifact Registry.
    • Set the GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS environment variable to the path of the key file to enable authentication.

Remember to securely manage the service account key file, as it provides access to your GCP resources. Rotate keys periodically and follow best practices for key management.

While there might not be tutorials specifically tailored to creating service accounts for GCP Artifact Registry, you can refer to the Google Cloud documentation for detailed instructions on creating service accounts and managing access control in GCP. Additionally, community forums and Q&A sites like Stack Overflow can be helpful if you encounter specific issues or questions during the process.
