You can share access to images and snapshots with other users by granting them the following IAM roles or permissions at the resource, project, folder, or organization level.

  • Images: The roles/compute.imageUser role or the compute.images.useReadOnly permission.

  • Snapshots: The roles/compute.storageAdmin role or the compute.snapshots.useReadOnlypermission.

These roles and permissions allow you to share images and snapshots with other team members outside of the project that owns the images and snapshots. 

To grant the image sharing role, use the GCP Console, 

  1. Go to the IAM page in the GCP Console.

  2. If prompted, select your project.

  3. If you are adding a new user:

    • Click Add at the top of the page.

    • Provide one or more email address of the account to which you want to grant access.

    • Grant one or more roles to the member.

      • Images: Select Compute Engine > Compute Image User from the role selector.

      • Snapshots: Select Compute Engine > Compute Storage Admin from the role selector.

  4. Save your changes.
