I want to know if it's possible to transfer the public IP Address from one project to another in GCP.

What I am exact too?

I've created an instance under a project called ops, but now that instance has to move on to another project under development which I was able to move by converting them into an image and created a VM under development.

But I want to retain the same public IP address. How could I move the IP address from one project to another in GCP (Google Cloud Platform)?

It will be great that if someone could say in step by step.


Currently, it's not possible to move the public IP from one project to another.

There is an open feature request for this matter link

  • That link is not publicly accessible. – kasperd Feb 21 '18 at 22:30
  • @kasperd the link is correct, is the public issue tracker. You have internal access therefore if you click the link it will open the internal case, if you try opening it in incognito mode you will be redirected to the public case. – Jordi Miralles Mar 6 '18 at 13:12
  • Well to bad for my situation today as moved to new project and have to remap IPs everywhere in my code and devops! – Nam G VU Feb 1 '20 at 19:13
