There may be times when you need to reconnect your Projects in your GCP Integration, or add new projects to an existing integration.

  • Currently connected GCP Integration




In order to reconnect your projects individually, You can attempt the following:

  1. Edit your GCP Connection -> 

  2. Add a Project ->    

  3. Enter the same project you want to update, in this example: 'strange-radius-999991' blob  

  4. Download the connection script, copy the run command ->   Make sure you don't have any existing downloaded scripts, otherwise, the run command may not work correctly.

  5. Open your editor in the shell -> blob

  6. Delete any Existing Vanta individual project scripts and vanta-scanner-key.json blob   blob  
    Drag and Drop the newly downloaded script:

  7. Now, open the terminal -> blob

  8. Paste the run script in the terminal and hit enter -> blob    

  9. Agree to changes -> blob  

  10. Open the editor again after completed -> blob  

  11. Download the newly generated vanta-scanner-key.json blob blob    

  12. Drag and Drop into the Vanta GCP Connection Step -> blob   
  13. When you click next and move to the next step, Vanta should start pulling your resources: blob   You'll notice that any existing scoping and ownership will retain its configuration: blob  


You can now click Done and you should see all your Resources from your previously integrated projects retained their scoping and ownership. You're all set, and good to go!
