Module Description

Google Cloud SDK is a set of tools that you can use to manage resources and applications hosted on Google Cloud Platform.

These tools include:

  • gcloud
  • gsutil
  • core
  • bq
  • kubectl
  • app-engine-python
  • app-engine-java
  • beta
  • alpha
  • pubsub-emulator
  • gcd-emulator


If you just want a Google Cloud SDK installation with the default options you can run :

By default, Install Latest Version of SDK with following tools:

  • gcloud
  • gsutil
  • core
  • bq
include gcloudsdk

If you need to customize version and install_dir configuration option you need to do the following:

class { 'gcloudsdk':
     version   => '108.0.0',
     install_dir = '/opt'

If you need to customize tools installation option you need to do the following:

class { 'gcloudsdk':
     is_install_gcloud => true
     is_install_gsutil => true
     is_install_core => true
     is_install_bq => true
     is_install_kubectl => false
     is_install_app_engine_python => true
     is_install_app_engine_java => true
     is_install_beta => false
     is_install_alpha => false
     is_install_pubsub_emulator => false
     is_install_gcd_emulator => false

Restart the shell or terminal after gsutil package is installed. This will set the path of gsutil in the default environment path variable.

Alternatively, you can source shell script by executing the following command or export the path to configure gsutil to work without restarting the shell.

      source /etc/profile.d/
      export PATH=$PATH:${install_dir}/google-cloud-sdk/bin
