Assess which action you will need to take

To understand the type of usage under your billing account, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Google Cloud Platform Console.
  2. Open the left-side menu and select Billing > Reports.
  3. Select Show Filters and then group by SKU.
  4. Look in the Product column:
    • If there is no use of a Google Cloud Platform product, then no action on any of the billing account's projects is needed.
    • Otherwise, proceed to identify which projects require action by following the remaining steps below.
  5. Add a per-project filter.
  6. Check each project individually to see if a Google Maps Platform and Google Cloud Platform product is used.
  7. If a project has:
    1. GCP Only usage in IDR: No action is needed.
    2. GCP Only usage in USD: Migrate your GCP billing accounts to local currency payments in IDR (Indonesian Rupiahs).
    3. GMP Only usage in either IDR or USD: No action is needed at this time.
    4. GCP and GMP usage under separate projects (IDR or USD): No action is needed at this time.
    5. GCP and GMP usage under the same projects (IDR or USD): Separate your Google Maps Platform usage into separate projects (see these instructions).

    Note: To find out the currency of your billing account, please go to your billing overview.
