How to determine GCP project of a GCS bucket
The Problem Statement
When there are any issues with a GCS (google cloud storage) bucket in GCP (google cloud platform), our teams / SREs / executives would almost always know (either or all of) the following info about the bucket:
- bucket name
- public URL
- authenticated URL
- gsutil URL
- etc etc
However, from these info, it’s not clear which GCP project (out of the gazillion GCP projects in an organization account) owns the specific bucket.
Step 1: Determine projectNumber
using the bucket API explorer
> Just add the bucket name into the
bucket field of the form and leave everything else default as it is.
Step 2: Determine PROJECT_ID
using the ‘
gcloud projects list’ command
gcloud projects list --filter="projectNumber:<PROJECT_NUMBER>"
Thus, you can find out the PROJECT_ID / PROJECT_NAME of the GCS bucket.
