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 install_gsutil.sh shell script by executing the following command or export the path to configure gsutil to work without restarting the shell.

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