The Hierarchical stage provides many authentication options including OAuth bearer token. This is required for Google rest calls but expires and must be regenerated. Suggestion is to allow the Google service account json file to be added as an authentication option.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||To enhance connectivity to Google cloud APIs that are not included in the Storage or BigQuery connectors. Also other vendor rest APIs that require a json security file to be presented.|
How should it work?
The Google storage and BigQuery connectors require the Google service account json file for authentication. The Hierarchical stage should have the same option.
