Service Usage🤓

Hi Ninja🥷! Here we will explore together aboutService Usage API 🙌. It is a Google Cloud infrastructure service that enables you to manage and list APIs and Services in your Cloud projects. You can keep track of and manage the APIs and services offered by Google, Google Cloud, and other companies.

Service Usage

Enables services that service consumers want to use on Google Cloud Platform, lists the available or enabled services, or disables services that service consumers no longer use.

Set up Service Usage for a development environment🧑‍💻

The configuration of your development environment to use the Service Usage API is covered in the following points.

  • The Google Cloud console is the most straightforward approach to enable and disengage services for most operational use cases.

 

  • You can utilize the Google Cloud CLI to write scripts.

 

  • Use one of the client libraries if you need to write code that interacts with the Service Usage API.

 

  • You can test the API without creating a complete application development environment by following the alternate setup instructions in this article and using the curl command.

Listing Services🎯

The list of APIs and services that are enabled or accessible in a Google Cloud project is explained in this section. Public Google Cloud services, like Pub/Sub, and any other APIs and services shared privately with you, including services made using Cloud Endpoints, may be included in the available or enabled APIs and services list. See Public and Private Services for further details on the distinctions between public and private APIs and services.

The Google Cloud console is the simplest way to list services for most operational use cases. The Google Cloud CLI is another tool you may use to write programs. We advise using one of the client libraries we provide if you must program against the Service Usage API. You can use the curl command to test the API and experiment without setting up a complete application development environment by following the alternate instructions in this guide and doing so.

Enabling services

APIs can be enabled in a variety of ways. Before enabling some APIs, you are prompted to agree to their Terms of Service. Special signup and allow listing are required before using any APIs because they are in the preview phase. Other APIs might require further details, such as your company's contact details and the application name you are creating. It is used to assist Google in understanding how the API is being used and as a secondary contact should we need to get in touch with you regarding your use of the service when more information is sought; it is not shared with any third parties outside of Google.

Disabling services

Any pending costs will still be charged to your account, and you will be charged for any billable API use in your projects even after you disable an API for a project. See APIs and Billing for more details.

Note: If you try to disable a service that other enabled services depend on in version 1 of the API, the call will fail. An error message will be returned from the API request to discontinue the service. Set the disable dependent services parameter on the services to disable both the given service and all of its dependent services. Valid for disabled requests.

Managing Service Quota🧠

This section explains how to view all quota metrics and limits for a particular service on a Google Cloud project and how to use a quota override to cap the quota consumption for that service. Any service, including public Google Cloud services and private services developed using Cloud Endpoints, can have a quota managed for your projects using Service Usage. 

Note: Service Utilization does not show information about quota usage, only about a project's restrictions. Utilizing the consumer quota resource and the Cloud Monitoring API, you may obtain information about quota usage.

The simplest way to manage quota for most operational use cases is to use the Google Cloud console. We advise using one of the client libraries we provide if you must program against the Service Usage API. You can explore the API by following the directions in this manual and testing it using the gcurl command without setting up a complete application development environment.

Access Control with IAM, Manage Service Usage resources with Terraform, Managing service Quota

Manage Service Usage resources with Terraform💯

The Pre-GA Offerings Terms of the Google Cloud Terms of Service apply to this feature or product. Limited support may be available for pre-GA goods and features, and modifications may not be compatible with earlier pre-GA releases.

To manage consumer quota overrides, you can use the google_service_usage_consumer_quota_override schema to specify resources in Terraform configuration file and run Terraform commands to apply the change.

Modify Consumer Quota Overrides

  1. Edit your main.tf file and adjust the value of an override value field to modify an override.
     
  2. Put the Terraform configuration into action.
     
   terraform apply

Delete Consumer Quota Overrides

  1. Remove the matching resource block from the main.tf file to remove a consumer quota override. You can eliminate several overrides. Make sure your main.tf file is empty if you want to get rid of any overrides.
     
  2. Put the Terraform configuration into action.
     
 terraform apply

Access Control with IAM🧑‍💻

IAM (Identity and Access Management) is used by Service Usage to regulate service access. This section covers the IAM roles and permissions linked to Service Usage, along with tips on utilizing them to manage access.

Resource model

There are three pertinent resources for Service Usage:

  1. The service you are using.
     
  2. The project from which you are using the service.
     
  3. The operation or long-running operation is returned by certain methods.

 

A permit on one or more of these resources is necessary for each Service Usage method.

Frequently Asked Questions❓

Why do we use Service Usage?

In your cloud applications, you can carry out the following operations using the Service Usage API: List services and APIs, Activate or deactivate services and APIs, List API and service quota restrictions, and remove API and service quota restrictions.

What is Terraform in simple terms?

With the help of HashiCorp Terraform, in human-readable configuration files that you can reuse, publish, and version, you can specify cloud and on-premises resources.

What is a service account within Google Cloud, and what is its purpose?

A unique kind of Google account called a "service account" is designed to represent a machine-based user who has to authenticate and be given permission to access data in Google APIs.

What does API enabled mean?

An application programming interface (API) is a messenger that processes requests and ensures the seamless functioning of enterprise systems. API enables interaction between data, applications, and devices. It delivers data and facilitates connectivity between devices and programs.

What does IAM stand for in the cloud?

To define and manage the roles and access privileges of particular network entities (people and devices) to a variety of cloud and on-premises services, identity and access management (IAM) is a set of procedures, guidelines, and tools.
