Managing projects and applications

A project consists of

  1. a set of applications,
  2. along with activated APIs,
  3. Google Cloud resources, and
  4. the team and billing information associated with those resources.
Credentials such as API keys are specific to an application rather than to a project.

However, all applications within a given project use the same branding information (logo, email address, etc.) on their user consent screen, as described in Setting up OAuth 2.0.

Applications within a project also share

  1. activated APIs,
  2. permissions, and
  3. billing information.

Managing project members

If you create a project, you have owner-level permissions and can grant owner-level permissions to other project members. Those with owner-level permissions are project owners.

Only project owners can add and remove other project members and edit their permission levels. Project owners can share a project with an email address that represents a group, but every project must have at least one project member that is an individual, not a group.

To manage project members, do the following:

  1. Visit the Google Developers Console
  2. Select a project, or create a new one.
  3. In the sidebar on the left, select Permissions.
  4. To add a team member or group, select Add Member.
  5. To change the permission setting for a project member, click the dropdown box in the Permission column and select a new permission level. The new permission level is saved automatically.
  6. To delete a project member, click the trash icon to the right of the project member's permission setting.
