Google Cloud Storage

Start by creating a new Google Cloud Storage bucket. The following example uses a bucket named thanos-bucket. Next, download a service account JSON file from Google’s service account manager (steps).

Now create a yaml file named object-store.yaml in the following format, using your bucket name and service account details:

type: GCS
config:
  bucket: "thanos-bucket"
  service_account: |-
    {
      "type": "service_account",
      "project_id": "...",
      "private_key_id": "...",
      "private_key": "...",
      "client_email": "...",
      "client_id": "...",
      "auth_uri": "https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth",
      "token_uri": "https://oauth2.googleapis.com/token",
      "auth_provider_x509_cert_url": "https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/certs",
      "client_x509_cert_url": ""
    }

Note: given that this is yaml, it requires this specific indention.

Warning: do not apply a retention policy to your Thanos bucket, as it will prevent Thanos compaction from completing.
