Ansible and Service account on GCP

Hello Everyone,


I want to manage GCP VM instances  configuration with Ansible but with Metadata ssh keys . I checked some articles which are   using OS Login but that disables Metadata managing keys automatically 


Is that posible?

Hi @alexsec,

I haven’t used it but have you add the keys to your CE Metadata? You can go to CE - Metadata - SSH Keys. I think it will work.
