Set up your GCP account

Static mirrors of GOV.UK are hosted in storage buckets within AWS and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). You may need login to GCP to remove an asset or to emergency publish content using the static mirrors.

Request GCP access

Permission to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is managed by RE GOV.UK team. Access to GCP is granted when permanent Production access is approved and merged to GOV.UK user reviewer repository.

To request GCP access, raise a Zendesk ticket with Reliability Engineering. Include the user reviewer PR in the ticket body.

You'll be notified when GCP access granted and able to login to GCP console using your email address.
