To use a Cloud API, you must enable it for your project. Depending on how many projects are involved, including the client project and resource projects, you may need to enable an API for multiple projects.
Enabling an API requires you to accept the Terms of Service and billing responsibility for the API. You need proper permissions on the project and the API to enable it.
To enable an API for a project using the console:
- Go to the GCP Console API Library.
- From the projects list, select a project or create a new one.
- In the API Library, select the API you want to enable. If you need help finding the API, use the search field and/or the filters.
- On the API page, click ENABLE.
You can disable any APIs for your project that you no longer use to avoid misuse and accidental billing charges.
