Introduction

The Snow Integration Connector for Google Cloud Discovery is used for the discovery of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). The connector discovers Virtual Machine (VM) instances that are turned on or off across multiple Google Cloud projects and zones that make up a Google Compute infrastructure and delivers the discovered data to the Announcement incoming folder in Snow Integration Manager. The retrieved information is displayed in Snow License Manager under Cloud reports in the Cloud section.

Prerequisites

To configure the Google Cloud Discovery connector, a Google Cloud service account with permissions to at least one project is required.
