When you are working with Google Cloud Storage Metadata, you need to define the Google Cloud Platform Credentials to be able to perform operations on the storage.
A new wizard has been added to propose selecting the corresponding credentials, which will be displayed when creating a new storage Metadata or when launching the wizard from an existing Metadata.
This wizard has been added to ease the configuration and usability of Google Storage Metadata.
Note that the credentials proposed in this wizard are retrieved from all Google Cloud Platform Metadata of current workspace, in which credentials are defined.
All existing credentials are displayed automatically.
Just select one and click on Finish select the credentials.

Performance improvements when sending large files into Google Storage.
A new attribute "Credentials File Format" has been added to choose how the credentials will be provided.
Note that for backward compatibility, the previously used "Json Key String" attribute, which has been moved to "deprecated" tab, has priority on the new format attribute.
To use the new mechanism, you must remove the value in the old attribute and then define the link.
The new format attribute is proving the two following formats:
|Localfile||Absolute file path to the JSON private key file corresponding to the account to connect with. Note that it must be accessible by the Runtime on the file system.|
|String||JSon Access token string. This corresponds to the unencrypted content of the JSON private key file corresponding to the account to connect with.|
Example of local file
Example of string
The advantage of string format is that, instead of using a file path as with the other attribute, you specify the credentials directly in Metadata, so you do not have to store a local file somewhere that can be accessed by the Runtime.
The downside is that this attribute is stored as plain text inside the Metadata.
We advise to use it for development purposes, and to consider using the local file option instead for production environments.
