Can a GCP service account with owner for a project grant rights to user account

0 votes
I have been given a service account & json file with owner rights to a test project. Can I grant rights to my gmail.com account from that to be able to manage the project through the normal portal cloud.google.com view?

This seems backwards to me - I would expect a user with rights to that project to have to grant my gmail.com account to that service account.

I'm just starting out so please let me know if I am missing something here. Thanks.

A service account is intended to perform a service to service integration with specific rights required for that service account. A big wrapper owner privilege is an anti-pattern in my opinion.

I would recommend you to talk to your admin to provide you ownership on your google account instead .
