Configure Google Cloud

Configure Google Cloud so the Pulumi CLI can connect to Google Cloud. If you have previously configured the Google Cloud CLI, gcloud, Pulumi will respect and use your configuration settings.

If this is your first time running pulumi new or most other pulumi commands, you will be prompted to log in to the Pulumi service. The Pulumi CLI works in tandem with the Pulumi service in order to deliver a reliable experience. It is free for individual use, with features available for teams. Hitting ENTER at the prompt opens up a web browser allowing you to either sign in or sign up.

Next, we’ll create a new project.
