Configure PK Protect for GCS

The PK Protect Cloud IDP for Google Cloud only has one configurable property file.

File path: {Installation Path}/DgSecure/IDPs/CloudIDP/config.properties

IDP.port: Default port number is 8081.


Dg.meta.name: Defines the bucket where PKWARE metadata is stored. This includes temporary files, the GCS IDP installer, and logs.


dg.google.zone: Sets the geographic region where the compute cluster is created. Typically, it should be set as the same zone where the cloud IDP is installed. This value can be set to any place where the user has quota. Available quota can be found out at

https://console.cloud.google.com/compute/quota?project=[project ID]    


dg.google.projectId: This value should be the name of the ProjectId. When using the "gcloud" command, this id should match the "project" parameter in gcloud.


cloud.platform: This value should be either “S3” or “GCS”, depending on which platform the cloud IDP will run against. This value is automatically set during the installation process.

dg.controller.id: The Controller ID should be provided by the DSM Administrator to authenticate the controller. This property behaves like a whitelist of valid controllers. This is a comma-separated list of names. If this parameter is not specified (or commented out), then controller IDP verification is disabled.

Multi-cluster support is available for GCS. Multiple GCS Cloud IDPs can be deployed against a single controller.
