Locate the project ID and project number
There are two ways to identify your project: the project number and project ID.
The project number is automatically assigned when you create a project.
The project ID is a unique identifier for a project. When you first create a project, you can accept the default generated project ID or create your own. A project ID cannot be changed after the project is created, so if you are creating a new project, be sure to choose an ID that you'll be comfortable using for the lifetime of the project.
Note: You should be aware that some resource identifiers (such as project IDs) might be retained beyond the life of your project. For this reason, avoid storing sensitive information in resource identifiers.
To locate your project ID and project number:
- Go to the Cloud Platform Console.
- From the projects list, select the name of your project.
- On the left, click Dashboard. The project name and ID are displayed in the Dashboard.
