You may need the full path (Uniform Resource Identifier, or URI) to the files in your workspace storage (Google bucket) when bringing data into a Cloud Environment or creating a data table.

The full link format will be gs://fs-your-Google-bucket-ID/filename. You can find the full file path in Terra (option 1) or Google Cloud console (option 2). 

Option 1: Find the full path in Terra

1.1. Find your Google bucket ID from the workspace home page

Click on the clipboard icon at the bottom right to copy the Google bucket ID to your clipboard (arrow).
