Add and remove cloud provider credentials from your account at any time. Astra uses these credentials to discover Kubernetes compute, the apps on the compute, and to provision resources on your behalf.

Note that all users in Astra share the same sets of credentials.

Add credentials

The most common way to add credentials to Astra is when you manage compute, but you can also add credentials from the Account page. The credentials will then be available to choose when you manage additional Kubernetes compute.

What you’ll need

You should have the service account key file for a service account that has the required permissions. Learn more.

  1. Click Account > Credentials.

  2. Click Add Credentials.

  3. Enter a name for the credentials that distinguishes them from other credentials in Astra.

  4. Provide the Google Cloud service account key file either by uploading the file or by pasting the contents from your clipboard.

  5. Click Add Credentials.


The credentials are now available to select when you add compute to Astra.

Remove credentials

An Account Owner can remove credentials from the account at any time.

  1. Click Account > Credentials.

  2. Click the drop-down list in the State column for the credentials that you want to remove.

  3. Click Remove.
