Part 1: GCP services and hybrid UI configuration

Prerequisites

This section describes tasks you must accomplish before you set up the hybrid UI and GCP services.

To ensure that you can provision your organization (as described in this section):

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

Process overview

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. Create a GCP project in the Console. Then request that Apigee make it hybrid enabled. This can take 24 to 48 hours for us to do for you, so you better get crackin'!
  3. Enable APIs in the Console. Without these, hybrid services wouldn’t be able to talk to one another or other services.
  4. Create an organization with the Apigee APIs. Once you have an organization, you're almost ready to make API calls and create API proxies.
  5. Add an environment. 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.
