Turn Google Cloud Platform on or off for users

As a G Suite administrator, you can control: 

  • Who can create Google Cloud Platform projects. By default, this is on for your organization. When Google Cloud Platform is turned off, users can't create new projects but can access their existing projects.  Note: This setting replaces the previous Google Developers Console on/off setting. If you turned off Google Developers Console, then the Google Cloud Platform setting is off.
     
  • Use of the OS Login API. For example, you can prevent users accessing VM instances outside of your organization. By default, the OS Login API settings are on.

Control who uses Google Cloud Platform in your organization

Before you begin: To turn the service on or off for certain users: Put their accounts in an organizational unit (to control access by department) or put them in an access group (to control access for users across or within departments).

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps > Additional Google services > Google Cloud Platform.
  3. To turn on or off a service only for users in an organizational unit:

    1. At the left, select the organizational unit.
    2. Select On or Off.
    3. To keep the service turned on or off even when the service is turned on or off for the parent organizational unit, click Override.
    4. If the organization's status is already Overridden, choose an option:
      • Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
      • Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).
