Prior to installation, please make sure you've installed Google Cloud PHP Autoloader. This extension depends on the autoloader to load the essential Google Cloud PHP libraries.

IMPORTANT: Please back up your media files prior to installation. Files lost to accidental deletion cannot be recovered.


See here for documentation.


There are several advantages to cloud-based storage solutions like Google Cloud Storage, including:


Do I have to use a service account key for authentication? Or can I use a different method?

Currently, only service account keys are supported for authentication.

Does the extension provide a CLI?

No, it does not. However, you can perform bucket operations via gsutil.

Are log files synchronized to the bucket?

No, only media files are synchronized.

Can I synchronize downloadable product files to the bucket?

Yes, it can synchronize both sample and link files.

You need to create and install a service account key to authenticate with Google Cloud. Verify you've completed the following:

  1. Generate a Google Cloud service account key with Storage Admin privileges
  2. Install service account key to local or mounted filesystem with read-only permissions for Magento user
  3. Under System > Configuration > Nickolas Burr Extensions > Google Cloud Storage, make sure:
    1. The extension is enabled
    2. The Google Cloud project name where the bucket exists is set
    3. The path to the service account key (e.g. /etc/gcs.json) is set
    4. The Google Cloud Storage bucket name (e.g. mybucket) is set
    5. [OPTIONAL] If you use the same bucket for multiple projects, you can specify a subdirectory to synchronize to inside the bucket. Otherwise, it will synchronize to /.

For more information on Google Cloud service account keys, please see Creating and Managing Service Account Keys.


Several key parts of this extension are derived from the magento-s3 extension.
