On the latest version of
Firebase (Announced during Google I/O 2016), how do I add other people to my project or app whom I want to
collaborate with? I came across IAM roles through
Settings > Permissions. Is this the right way? If I add person there and assign a role, say Editor, will he/she be notified about it through email? Will a request be sent or will they be added directly to that role?
To give people access to your Firebase project, take these steps:
Viewer, etc as per your requirement)
The newly added users will get an email with the subject
[Firebase] Invitation to join project and an option to
Accept Invite in the body. Be certain to let them know that you added them so that they can accept the invite.
If you're adding a Project owner, an invite will be sent to the new user. However, no email invites are sent for the Project Editor/Viewer roles.
UPDATE 6/18/2018 - changes to Cloud Console and Google's functionality, the original solution may no longer work as shared in comments. For a recent project, I was able to add other users and permissions via Firebase console as indicated below.
Originally you had to choose
Editor but you do not have to any more. There are new roles added to Google Cloud IAM in the
other section, namely the
Firebase Rules System role.
If you add a user to a Google Cloud
project using IAM and assign them this role, they can access Firebase project by visiting:
The authorized project(s) should appear and they can access, without access to the rest of the Google Cloud project.
In latest version of the console adding is in a bit different.
Your Project ->
Project Overview ->
Users and Permissions . This will open up new Pop Up.
Now click on the
+Add to add the Members.
Now Add Email Id of the member. Now below that choose from the dropdown
Collaborator as shown below and
Save. Thats all! You are done.
