Re: How to host and share Data Docs on GCS

I am currently hosting my data docs on GCS, but I’m having some trouble.

I have Cloud-IAM-Based Access set up, and I can access data docs by clicking into data_docs/validations. I can also access index.html. However, index.html isn’t able to access the validation results; when I click on a run id I get the very descriptive error: “Not Found”.

At this point I have 2 thoughts.

  1. I should try IP-Based Access, but that brings its own problems. I’m having a hard time understanding what the Google App Engine is, what it’s doing (and how), and if it will actually give me what I’m looking for. I want to be able to access data docs through the GCS UI, and I’m not sure how the App Engine would help with that
  2. We ought to figure out why Cloud-IAM-Based Access isn’t working, and (if necessary) update the how-to guide accordingly. If it does turn out that the only way to get this to work is IP-Based Access, then maybe the Cloud-IAM section of the how-to guide should get removed?
