Hi Guys,

I am new to Terraform. I am trying to use the GCP cloud resource from Terraform. But I am getting the below error.

$ terraform apply

Error: Attempted to load application default credentials since neither `credentials` nor `access_token` was 
set in the provider block.  No credentials loaded. To use your gcloud credentials, run 'gcloud auth application-default login'.  Original error: google: could not find default credentials. See
https://developers.google.com/accounts/docs/application-default-credentials for more information.                                                                                                                                                         on main.tf line 1, in provider "google":

Hi@akhtar,

You are trying to connect the GCP cloud from Terraform. Terraform will use the GCP SDK to connect to your project. But the first time you have to manually login to your GCP cloud from the command line using the below-given command.

$ gcloud auth application-default login


Hope this helped!!
