Setup Snowplow Insights on GCP

To set up your cloud environment ready for your Snowplow pipeline to be installed:

Create a new project

Please create a new project segregated from anything else you have running in GCP. For the latest documentation on setting up a new project please refer to Google Cloud’s documentation here.

Set up required permissions

Please add techops-cloud-admin@snowplowanalytics.com to your project with the following roles:

  • editor
  • Roles/resourcemanager.projectIamAdmin
  • Roles/errorreporting.admin
  • Roles/logging.admin
  • Roles/monitoring.admin

Enable billing for the project

Please enable billing on the project as failing to do so will prevent the pipeline from being installed.

Request your pipeline through Insights console

Once the above is done request your pipeline setup through the Insights console where you’ll need to provide the Project ID for your GCP project.
