There are two ways to identify your project: the project name and project ID.
You create the project name when you create the project.
The project ID is a unique identifier for a project and is used only within the console. 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:
- Go to the API Console.
- From the projects list, select Manage all projects. The names and IDs for all the projects you're a member of are displayed.
