When managing the Google Cloud Platform, first thing is to create a Project.
All Google Cloud Platform services are associated with a Project and you’ll be able to:
1) Track resource and quota usage
2) Enable billing
3) Manage permission and credentials
4) Enable services and API
Projects are identified three ways
1) Project name – A friendly name to describe the project
2) Project ID – A string that must be unique in all the world
3) Project Number – GCP will assign each project a unique number
The project ID and project number cannot be changed. It is recommended that use meaningful name when creating project ID for manageability. A typical project ID naming convention might use the following pattern:
[company]-[group/department]-[environment (dev, test, uat, stage, prod)]
$ gcloud projects create contoso-hr-dev –name=”Contoso HR Development Project”
Use gcloud projects list to show Projects.
Use gcloud projects delete to delete a Project
Each project can have multiple owners, editors, and viewers. There can also be multiple billing administrators. Remember, each project is attached to a billing account which is attached to a credit card or bank account. A billing administrator can manage these accounts and control which projects are attached to which billing accounts.
