  5. Enter the following details:

    • Filesystem Type - The type of filesystem target. Select Google Cloud Storage.
    • Display Name - Enter a name for your target filesystem.
    • Bucket Name - Enter the name of your Google Cloud Storage bucket.
    • Key File Options - Select whether to upload a JSON or a P12 key file to authenticate to your Google Cloud Storage bucket. Drag and drop your key file into the box below or select Browse to browse your system for it.

    Data Migrator imports Google Cloud Storage credentials from your JSON key file, stores them internally as configuration properties, then removes the file.

  6. Select Save. You can now use your Google Cloud Storage target in data migrations.
