View or edit Google Cloud projects

Every Apps Script project is associated with a project in Google Cloud. There are 2 types of Cloud projects for Apps Script:

  • Default Cloud projects: Apps Script automatically creates and manages a Google Cloud project each time someone creates and runs an Apps Script project. To learn more, refer to Default Cloud projects.
  • Standard Cloud projects: Users can create and manage their own Cloud projects for advanced Apps Script use cases. To learn more, refer to Standard Cloud projects.

To view your organization’s default and standard Cloud projects in the Cloud console, you must have the resourcemanager.projects.list permission for your organization. If you want to view standard and default projects separately, you also need resourcemanager.folders.list permission. To set view permissions for projects in your organization, refer to Assign view permission for all Cloud projects in an organization.

To edit your organization’s standard and default Cloud projects in the Cloud console, you must have the resourcemanager.projects.update permission for your organization. To set edit permissions for projects in your organization, refer to Assign edit permission for all Cloud projects in an organization.

View or edit default Cloud projects

Default projects fall under the Organization root > system-gsuite > apps-script folder in the Cloud resource hierarchy. Don't delete these folders. If you do, Apps Script can't create default projects and won't execute scripts properly.

To view the system-gsuite and apps-script folders, you must have resourcemanager.folders.list permission. If you only have resourcemanager.projects.list permission, standard and default projects show up together in one list.

To view or edit the default projects in your organization, take the following steps:

  1. Open the Cloud console at console.cloud.google.com.
  2. Click Menu > IAM & Admin > Manage Resources.
  3. Next to your organization, click Expand node .
  4. Next to the system-gsuite folder, click Expand node .
  5. Next to the apps-script folder, copy the ID.
  6. Click Filter > Parent ID.
  7. Paste the Apps Script folder ID and press Enter.
  8. Next to the project you want to view or edit, click More > Settings. The project opens in the Cloud console and you can make your changes.

View or edit standard Cloud projects

To view or edit the standard projects in your organization, take the following steps:

  1. Open the Cloud console at console.cloud.google.com.
  2. Click Menu > IAM & Admin > Manage Resources.
  3. Next to your organization, click Expand node . The list of projects includes all standard Cloud projects whether or not they have Apps Script projects associated with them. If you don’t have resourcemanager.folders.list permission, you might see default Cloud projects in the same list. Default project IDs start with sys-.
  4. Next to the project you want to view or edit, click More > Settings. The project opens in the Cloud console and you can make your changes.
