Part 1: GCP services and Hybrid UI configuration

You must obtain permission from your Apigee account representative before you can set up your GCP services and get a Hybrid-enabled organization, as described in this section.

Prerequisites

Before you set up the Hybrid UI and GCP services as described in this section, you must do the following:

Before you continue, make sure you've done the following:

After you have satisfied the above prerequisites, you can continue with the steps in next section.

Hybrid UI/GCP services configuration

The general process for setting up the Hybrid UI/GCP services is as follows:

  1. Create a GCP account using the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Console. This account will be bound to a new Hybrid organization.
  2. Sign the Trusted Tester agreement. This is a standard requirement when participating in an Alpha.
  3. Create a GCP project in the Console.
  4. Request Hybrid provisioning from Apigee. This can take 24 to 48 hours for us to do for you, so you better get crackin’!
  5. Enable the Apigee API in the Console. Without this service, Hybrid services wouldn’t be able to talk to one another.
  6. Add service accounts in the Console. There are five that we recommend you create. It’s not as hard as it sounds.
  7. Manage access to your project to your project so that additional users can participate, too.
  8. Add a new environment in the Hybrid UI. If you don’t do this, you won’t be able to complete the Hybrid runtime installation, nor will you have anywhere to deploy your API proxies to.

Each of these steps is described in the sections that follow.
