Prerequisites to Onboard GCP Organizations and Projects

Learn about the Service account and APIs that enable Prisma Cloud to ingest, analyze, and monitor the resources deployed within a GCP organization or project.
In order to analyze and monitor your GCP account, Prisma Cloud requires access to specific APIs and a service account which is an authorized identity that enables authentication between Prisma Cloud and GCP. A combination of custom, predefined, and primitive roles grant the service account the permissions it needs to complete specific actions on the resources in your GCP organization or project.
To successfully onboard and monitor the resources within your GCP organization or project, make sure you have completed the following prerequisites:

Service Account Permissions

The permissions that the Prisma Cloud service account needs to monitor your GCP resources depends on your cloud protection needs.
  • If you are onboarding a GCP organization, you must assign the roles to the IAM policy for the organization.
  • If you are onboarding a GCP project, you must assign the roles to the IAM policy for each project.
  • If you are using a master service account (MSA), you have two options:
    • (Recommended) Add permissions to the IAM policy for the organization.
    • Assign the roles to the IAM policy for each project individually.
The roles for read or read-write access permission that the service account requires are:
  • Viewer—Primitive role on GCP.
  • Prisma Cloud Viewer—Custom role. Prisma Cloud needs this custom role to grant cloud storage bucket permission to read storage bucket metadata and update bucket IAM policies. This role requires storage.buckets.get to retrieve your list of storage buckets, and storage.buckets.getIampolicy to retrieve the IAM policy for the specified bucket.
  • Compute Security Admin—Predefined role on GCP. An optional privilege that is required only if you want to enable auto-remediation.
  • Organization Role Viewer—Predefined role on GCP. This role is required for onboarding a GCP Organization.
  • Dataflow Admin—Predefined role on GCP. An optional privilege that is required for dataflow logs compression using the Dataflow service. See Flow Logs Compression on GCP for details.
  • Folder Viewer—Predefined role on GCP. An optional privilege that is required only if you want to onboard GCP Folder metadata, select specific folders (include or exclude folders), and to automatically create account groups based on the folder hierarchy.

Rate Limit Exception for GCP APIs

The API calls from Prisma Cloud use quota from the GCP project that you’ve onboarded, which enables Prisma Cloud to ingest resource metadata across multiple projects without exceeding the GCP API rate limits.
To ensure continuous insights in to all your GCP resources and to prevent rate limit exception errors from occurring for Prisma Cloud’s authorized API calls to GCP, make sure to:

GCP APIs

Prisma Cloud can ingest data from several GCP APIs.
When you use the Terraform template that Prisma Cloud provides to automate the onboarding of your GCP organization or project, the required permissions are automatically enabled for you.
  • In the GCP project where you create the service account, you must enable the Stackdriver Logging API (logging.googleapis.com) to monitor audit logs, and any other GCP APIs for which you want Prisma Cloud to monitor resources.
  • If a cloud service API is not enabled on a GCP project, Prisma Cloud skips the ingestion for the respective service; you must, however, ensure that
    Service Usage
    API is enabled on each GCP project that you want Prisma Cloud to monitor under your GCP organization hierarchy.
    To skip ingestion for a cycle, Prisma cloud watches the response from the Service Usage API for the details on which cloud services are enabled in a GCP project. For example, if you have not enabled cloud functions in one or more GCP projects within the GCP organization, Prisma cloud can learn about it and skip the ingestion cycle for this cloud service.
  • Prisma Cloud recommends you create the service account in a dedicated GCP project.
    GCP enforces a limit on the API calls allowed to a GCP project/IAM service account. When you create the service account in a dedicated GCP project, you can ensure that the API calls that Prisma Cloud makes do not interfere with any quota limits against your production workloads and services hosted in the separate GCP project.
  • Verify that you have granted all the required permissions to the Prisma Cloud service account.
    If the service account does not have the IAM permissions required to retrieve data, Prisma Cloud skips ingestion of the respective cloud.service(s) for your onboarded account. When you use the Terraform template provide by Prisma Cloud to automate the onboarding of your GCP organization or project, the required permissions are automatically enabled for you.
    To enable the APIs that allow Prisma Cloud to monitor your GCP projects, use it as shown in this example (that uses some of the APIs listed in the table below):
    gcloud services enable serviceusage.googleapis.com appengine.googleapis.com bigquery.googleapis.com cloudfunctions.googleapis.com dataflow.googleapis.com dns.googleapis.com dataproc.googleapis.com cloudresourcemanager.googleapis.com cloudkms.googleapis.com sqladmin.googleapis.com compute.googleapis.com storage-component.googleapis.com recommender.googleapis.com iam.googleapis.com container.googleapis.com monitoring.googleapis.com logging.googleapis.com
    Verify the APIs that you have enabled with
    gcloud services list
    .
    The following table lists the APIs and associated granular permissions if you want to create a custom role to onboard your GCP account. When the APIs are enabled and the service account has the correct set of roles and associated permissions, Prisma Cloud can retrieve data about your GCP resources and identify potential security risks and compliance issues across your cloud accounts. To create a custom role for the service account, see Create a Service Account With a Custom Role before you continue to add your GCP Organization or GCP Project to Prisma Cloud.

GCP Cloud Asset Inventory

GCP Cloud Asset Inventory (CAI) service allows you to search asset metadata within a project, folder, or organization using a single API instead of separate individual API calls to get the metadata. Prisma Cloud has adopted the CAI service for a few GCP services. The CAI service reduces the number of API calls to GCP and helps speed the time to report on assets on Prisma Cloud. CAI is enabled by default on Prisma Cloud.
The following GCP services (APIs) have CAI support on Prisma Cloud:
  • KMS (Get IAM policy, List Keyrings, and Cryptokeys)
  • Pub-Sub (Get IAM policy)
  • Dataproc (Get IAM policy)
  • Cloud Function (Get IAM policy)
  • Cloud Run (Get IAM policy)
  • BigQuery (Get IAM policy, List BigQuery Datasets, and Tables)
  • Compute Instance (GET IAM policy)
