Form field descriptions


Add a description to help you identify the set of credentials. This is an optional field. For example, say something like "use when ordering imagery for project ABC."


Register Google Cloud Platform credentials

The Google Cloud Platform JSON credentials file must be converted to a base64-encoded string before they're registered. The Credentials form gives two options:

  • Upload the JSON file: Use the upload control on the form to upload your Google Cloud credentials JSON file. This will base64-encode your credentials and paste them into the text box.


  • Base64-encode the credentials file on your own and paste the resulting string into the text box.

Once the text box is populated, click "Create Credentials".

See Google Cloud Storage setup for more information.

Register Azure Blob Storage credentials

When you choose the Azure Blob Storage radio button, a text box titled SAS URL will appear. Add the SAS URL you created for Azure Blob Storage access, then click "Create Credentials".

See Azure Blob Storage setup for more information.
