I decided to move bunjilfw.appspot.com to a custom domain app.bunjilforestwatch.net. To do this I first had to set up a google for business account for the domain. I used my first name for the email address and created an app.

I then attempted to change my email address to admin@bunjilforestwatch.net for the google for business custom domain's primary account. This failed with some red error code.

I can't seem to fully manage my app  bfwapp.appspot.com - menu options on the console like SSL seem to be missing.

I created a new app. bunjfw/appsopt.com.
When I try to add domain to the app i am taken to:
https://admin.google.com/app.bunjilforestwatch.net/accountchooser?u=me@bunjilforestwatch.net which says

"You are trying to access Google Admin of app.bunjilforestwatch.net but you do not have a valid logged in account for it.
Sign into one of the existing accounts for app.bunjilforestwatch.net
Or, use one of the below logged in users to manage the corresponding enterprise domain."
But I am the only user listed and I am definitely logged in as that user.
me@bunjilforestwatch.net
Any ideas?

Thanks. Problem was I had not set up billing because you get the first month free for google for business. But you still need billing setup just the same for custom domains to work on app engine - particularly if using SSL.

"By comparison, we sell Local SSD in 375GB chunks for $0.218/GB/month. Normalizing that to hourly pricing, we get $0.0003/GB/hour. So there’s the bottom line: we charge 57% less for local SSD that’s at least 4.8x faster than AWS. "
 
Get almost 5x the SSD performance at half the price...only on GCP.  And for the next 4 weeks you get 75% off so you can run intensive tests without spending much.

If you ever asked yourself questions like 'How much data do I have in BigQuery?' or 'Which datasets hold the most data in my project' or maybe even 'What tables are largest within my dataset', you're probably a lot like me ;-)

Inspired by Linux's 'du', I created a small service which does exactly what 'du' does for folders but only for Google BigQuery's projects, datasets and tables.

BQdu will scan your project/s and display a treemap visualization of your project, datasets and tables. You can mouse-over each tile and get a nice tooltip with information about the entity you're pointing to. Tiles are sized according to their relative size compared to the dataset (and datasets to projects).

Want to give it a try? Access it here: http://bqdu.info

Off course, it's still work in progress. Things may not work as intended (or at all!). If you've found an issue or have an idea how to improve the BQdu, - please let me know.

A couple of technical details - the client side code is written in Angular (with Material Design), the server is Python with Flask (proxying some API requests to BigQuery) running on AppEngine. Some backend settings are stored with Firebase (purely from convenience reasons).

P.S. small tip: drill-down with left-click and zoom-out with right-click

I often need vanilla linux environments to run code in when testing and developing with Google Cloud Platform. There are usually a bunch of packages and configuration parameters that I also need that make total sense to automate with a simple bash script. I think my needs are generic enough that the wider developer community is likely to find the same script useful in some contexts. I've packaged up the script together with an Apache 2 license and usage instructions on GitHub. The script is also available for use through one of my Google Cloud Storage buckets.

Right now the script prepares a Debian instance for basic development in both Python and Java. If there are any popular requests for further features let me know in the comments and I'll consider adding to the script in the future based on feedback.

A more detailed list of installed software can be found in the instructions but here is a summary:

Git
MySQL client
Gradle 2.3
Google App Engine Java & Python SDKs
pylint
pep8

I know you can do this with the bq command line tool, but if you need to run queries from a Windows shell (which sucks), and you have complicated enough queries (several pages long), you might want to consider this script.

I come from the relational world like probably everyone who's been doing software for the last 5 years or so. In 2012 NoSQL databases were already a thing, and I had an opportunity to work with Google's Datastore, so I googled the documentation and started from the beginning.

Your welcome! Hope it helps.

From last year a very simple tip...
Your development environment is setup to work using localhost, but if you try to access it from a different device on the same network you'll realize it doesn't work by default.

Hi everybody! I guess I need some help. We, +xamoom, are running our service on AppEngine. We now have the requirement of using one account of our users on our service as well as on third party services like a groupware solution and so on. So we need an SSO solution. Google Accounts are no option we need our own users on a centralized services, which allows loggings in a standard way so other products can use it. So we want to implement a CAS (Central authentication service) and use that as well as in our solution and also connect the other services to it. Our service currently uses Google Cloud Endpoints to create all our APIs. So I guess we have to switch this technology to something else and than implement our CAS and migrate our users to there. Anybody suggestions about best pratices, frameworks and so on how to accomplish that?

+Bruno Hautzenberger so you'd just want to have your own OAUTH2 authentication provider. I'd use OAUTH as a base because it's more common in web environments (SAML is mostly used to integrate with enterprise environments).
Nice example of what you need: http://shakirthowseen.blogspot.co.at/2014/10/implement-oauth-2-provider-in-google.html

Trying to run cloud endpoints on a separate module but it seems to only work if it's the default module. Is there a way to make it work as non  default? Below are the .yaml files. Thanks!

Cloud Dataflow in beta: already better than lambda in production?  Time to stop writing your code twice, in two different systems, to get both batch and streaming analytics.

Are we having bad AppEngine weather today? The console is failing (timing out) for at least one of my apps, and another one isn't logging properly as far as I can tell.
