Integrate with Google Cloud Platform


Integrating with Google Cloud Platform allows Bridgecrew to perform scans using read-only API calls. This integration is done using a Terraform template.


Before you start this integration, make sure you have:

  • A valid GCP credentials file
  • Terraform version 0.12 installed
  • The curl command-line tool (installed on the same instance running terraform)

You can use the output of terraform plan to view details of the resources before they are created. The resources that will be created as part of this integration are:

  • Google project service
  • Service account with the viewer role
  • Service account credential
  • Notification to Bridgecrew for the integration

In Bridgecrew

  1. Under Integrations, press GCP Read Only and then Add Project.
  1. Copy the Terraform module code.

In Terraform

  1. Paste the module you copied into your Terraform file. If you are creating a new GCP-terraform deployment file, add a provider block with the name of your credentials file and project as shown below.
provider "google" {
 credentials = file("credentials.json")
 project     = "my_project"
module "bridgecrew-read" {
  source                     = "bridgecrewio/bridgecrew-gcp-read-only/google"
  org_name               = "my_org"
  bridgecrew_token = "b4667191-6e30-5489-bbb8-030c3f7772eb"



Do not change the values of source, org_name and bridgecrew_token.

  1. Run terraform init.
  2. Run terraform apply.

When the terraform run is complete, the integration details will appear in Bridgecrew Cloud under Integrations>GCP Read Only.
