  • Updated


Issues with the Google Directory API are resulting in some users not gaining access to Google resources they should be able to access, such as Google buckets, VMs, and more.

For example, a user may create or clone a workspace and then receive an error that they don't have access to the workspace bucket.

July 25, 2022 9:00 AM ET - Significant reduction in errors - Our engineers made an adjustment on July 22 that significantly reduced the frequency of this issue newly occurring for users. We are still in conversation with Google to fix the permissions for previously affected users/groups.

July 20, 2022 12:00 PM ET - Ongoing issues & contacting Google - We are seeing continued reports of this issue and have followed up with Google support.

July 18, 2022 12:15 PM ET - Report of ongoing issues by Google - Google has informed us that they are still seeing issues with their Google Directory API. Users of the Terra platform may continue to be affected until the issue is resolved.

July 15, 2022 04:55 PM ET - API Stability / Remediation - We have not seen any of the original errors in the past hour and believe the issue is now remediated. We will continue to monitor to make sure the errors don't start cropping up again.

July 15, 2022 12:00 PM ET - Issue confirmation - We successfully identified an ongoing user issue that resulted from the ongoing Google Directory API issue.

July 15, 2022 10:35 AM ET - Issue identified - One of our engineers noticed a spike in errors from Google starting around 7AM ET, but impact to the platform was not obvious. Frontline Support worked with the engineer to investigate current reported issues to see if issues with the Google Directory API were the root cause.


Users may see error messages like

" does not have storage.objects.list access to the Google Cloud Storage bucket."
