Step 4: Request Hybrid provisioning

After you create your GCP account and project, you must request that Apigee create a new organization for you and makes it Hybrid enabled. A Hybrid-enabled organization is like a traditional Edge organization, except that it is bound to a GCP project. (It is not the same as a GCP organization or an Edge organization.)

The process of binding an Apigee organization to a GCP project is known as provisioning (which is just a fancy word for “set up”). As noted previously, the provisioning process is performed by Apigee.

To use Hybrid, a GCP project can be bound to only one Apigee organization, and vice-versa.

You cannot request that an existing Apigee organization be provisioned to work with Hybrid. Apigee must create a new, Hybrid-only organization for you.

To request a Hybrid-enabled organization from Apigee:

  1. Send the following information to apigee-hybrid-pre-ga@google.com:

    Project ID:
    Apigee org name:
    Project owner:
    Email address:
    Other users:
    Analytics region (choose one):
      [] asia-east1
      [] asia-northeast1
      [] asia-southeast1
      [] australia-southeast1
      [] europe-west1
      [] europe-west2
      [] us-central1
      [] us-east1
      [] us-east4
      [] us-west1

    The following table describes these fields in detail:

    Information Description
    Project ID The GCP project that you want bound to your new Hybrid-enabled organization. Please provide the GCP project ID that Google generated for you in Step 3: Create a GCP project.
    Apigee organization name

    The programmatic name for your Hybrid-enabled organization. Apigee recommends that you use the same name as the Project ID, but you can use another name if you want.

    If the organization name that you request is already in use, Apigee assigns a name similar to the one you provided, but with an alphanumeric string appended to it.

    Project owner The user account that is assigned the Owner role for the GCP project that you created in Step 3: Create a GCP project.
    Email address The email address that you specified in Step 2: Sign the Trusted Tester agreement. This helps us quickly find your submission.
    Other users A list of additional email addresses from your organization that require access to roles management.
    Analytics region

    The primary region for analytics data storage. You can request one of the following:

    • asia-east1
    • asia-northeast1
    • asia-southeast1
    • australia-southeast1
    • europe-west1
    • europe-west2
    • us-central1
    • us-east1
    • us-east4
    • us-west1

    We provide this option so that you can choose a region that is geographically close or if your organization has other storage requirements.

    Apigee responds with a confirmation email after we provision your new Hybrid-enabled organization. You should receive this confirmation within 24 to 48 business hours. You can then proceed to the next step, Step 5: Enable the Apigee API.
