Hi Google cloud experts,
I am trying to authenticate gcloud using json key and even doing everything as per docs it requires for password when I run
gcloud compute ssh root@production
Here is snapshot of steps I performed.
1. Authorizing access to Google Cloud Platform with a service account
tahir@NX00510:~/www/helloworld$ gcloud auth activate-service-account email@example.com --key-file=gcloud_key.json Activated service account credentials for: [firstname.lastname@example.org]
2. Initializing the gcloud
tahir@NX00510:~/www/helloworld$ gcloud init Welcome! This command will take you through the configuration of gcloud. Settings from your current configuration [default] are: compute: region: us-central1 zone: us-central1-b core: account: email@example.com disable_usage_reporting: 'True' project: concise-hello-122320 Pick configuration to use:  Re-initialize this configuration [default] with new settings  Create a new configuration Please enter your numeric choice: 1 Your current configuration has been set to: [default] You can skip diagnostics next time by using the following flag: gcloud init --skip-diagnostics Network diagnostic detects and fixes local network connection issues. Checking network connection...done. Reachability Check passed. Network diagnostic passed (1/1 checks passed). Choose the account you would like to use to perform operations for this configuration:  firstname.lastname@example.org  Log in with a new account Please enter your numeric choice: 1 You are logged in as: [email@example.com].

(Y/n)? n Your Google Cloud SDK is configured and ready to use! * Commands that require authentication will use firstname.lastname@example.org by default * Commands will reference project `concise-hello-122320` by default Run `gcloud help config` to learn how to change individual settings This gcloud configuration is called [default]. You can create additional configurations if you work with multiple accounts and/or projects. Run `gcloud topic configurations` to learn more. Some things to try next: * Run `gcloud --help` to see the Cloud Platform services you can interact with. And run `gcloud help COMMAND` to get help on any gcloud command. * Run `gcloud topic --help` to learn about advanced features of the SDK like arg files and output formatting
3. SSHing to gcloud
tahir@NX00510:~/www/helloworld$ gcloud compute ssh root@production No zone specified. Using zone [us-central1-b] for instance: [production]. email@example.com's password:
I don't know which password should I enter here, also I believe it should not ask for password in the first place because I have used json key file for authentication.
Could you guys please help me out to fix this.
