Manage Play Games Services project settings in Google Cloud Platform

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

There may be instances where you will want to view and edit your Play Games Services project directly in Google Cloud Platform.

Typical scenarios include:

  • Enabling additional APIs for your project (such as Google Drive).
  • Editing the branding information for your game in the OAuth 2.0 dialog.
  • Viewing your API quota and requesting more (if necessary).
  • Editing authorized URIs or JavaScript origins in Client IDs that you've created in the past.

View your project

To view your project in Google Cloud Platform:

  1. Select a credential for your game on the Configuration page (Grow > Play Games Services > Setup and management > Configuration).
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the Authentication section and click View in Google Cloud Platform.

Adjust API usage quotas

In Google Cloud Platform, you can view the API usage limits currently set up for your game and the amount of quota that has been used. You can also set per-user limits to prevent an abusive user (or a buggy game client) from depleting your quota.

To view or change usage limits for your project, or to request an increase to your quota, do the following:

  1. If you don't already have a billing account for your project, then create one.
  2. Visit the Enabled APIs page of the API library in the API Console, and select an API from the list.
  3. To view and change quota-related settings, select Quotas. To view usage statistics, select Usage.

Be aware that "users" are determined based on the IP address of the client making the quota request. For instance, if all of your requests came from a single server, that server might be erroneously tagged as a single spammy user. To prevent this, you can attach a userIp=x.x.x.x argument to your API endpoint requests.

To learn more about setting per-user quotas, see Google Cloud Platform documentation.

In addition to a per-user limit, there is an application-wide per-day limit for the Google Play Games Services API. Typically, you will not need to change the pre-allocated limit. However, if you anticipate a large spike in volume (for example, for an upcoming launch event), you can request for additional quota by clicking the Request more link.

Activate other APIs

When you create your client ID in Play Console, the Google Play Games Services API is automatically turned on for your project. You can activate other Google APIs from Google Cloud Platform.

To enable an API for your project, do the following:

  1. Open the API Library in Google API Console. If prompted, select a project or create a new one. API Library lists all available APIs, grouped by product family and popularity.

  2. If the API you want to enable isn't visible in the list, use search to find it.

  3. Select the API you want to enable, then click the Enable button.

  4. If prompted, enable billing.

  5. If prompted, accept the API's terms of service.

Modify branding information

To modify the branding information (title, logo, etc.) for your game that appears in the OAuth 2.0 dialog, set the attributes in the consent screen of Google Cloud Platform.

To set up your project's consent screen, do the following:

  1. Open the [Consent Screen page](https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials/consent) in Play Console. If prompted, select a project or create a new one.
  2. Fill out the form and click Save.

To modify attributes related to your OAuth 2.0 client ID (web origins and redirect urls for a web app, etc.):

  1. Open Play Console and navigate to your game.
  2. Select a credential for your game on the Configuration page (Grow > Play Games Services > Setup and management > Configuration).
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the Authentication section and click View in Google Cloud Platform.
  4. In Google Cloud Platform{, select your project.
  5. In the sidebar on the left, select APIs & auth. Make sure that the Google Play Games Services API status is ON in the displayed list of APIs.
  6. In the sidebar on the left, select Registered apps.
  7. Expand the OAuth 2.0 Client ID section and find the attribute to edit.
