Accessing Google cloud project with service account

0 votes
I have used the gcloud auth login for authentication, but now I want to use a more secure method with service accounts. I have stopped my instance, created a service account with Owner roles, but when I use the gcloud project list, I can only see the current project. I have multiple other projects, how can I access every project with a service account?

In order to achieve this, you will have to activate the service account. You could use the following command:

$ gcloud auth activate-service-account --key-file=[KEY:JSON]

and then initialize the gcloud command with

$ gcloud init

Check this for more info: https://cloud.google.com/sdk/gcloud/reference/auth/activate-service-account
