Starting with HDP 2.6.5, it is possible to configure access to Google Cloud Storage from HDP via the gs cloud storage connector. There are two ways to do this:

- You can use Cloudbreak to deploy clusters on GCP and help you configure access to GCS from your Cloudbreak-managed HDP cluster. The steps involve (1) Setting up a service account on Google Cloud and (2) Providing the Service Account Email Address to Cloudbreak in the cluster create wizard on the Cloud Storage page. For detailed steps, see

- It is also possible to configure access to GCS by setting up a service account, manually placing the service account key on all nodes of the cluster, and setting related properties in Ambari. For detailed steps, see

Note that this capability is currently only available as technical preview.
