A Google Cloud project is required to use Google Workspace APIs and build Google Workspace add-ons or apps. This project forms the basis for creating, enabling, and using all Google Cloud services, including managing APIs, enabling billing, adding and removing collaborators, and managing permissions.

To create a Google Cloud project:

  1. Open the Google Cloud console.
  2. At the top-left, click Menu > IAM & Admin > Create a Project.
  3. In the Project Name field, enter a descriptive name for your project.

    Optional: To edit the Project ID, click Edit. The project ID can't be changed after the project is created, so choose an ID that meets your needs for the lifetime of the project.

  4. In the Location field, click Browse to display potential locations for your project. Then, click Select.
  5. Click Create. The console navigates to the Dashboard page and your project is created within a few minutes.
