  location_id = lookup(var.project_location[count.index], "location_id")
  project     = element(var.firebase_project, lookup(var.project_location[count.index], "project_id"))
  provider    = "google-beta"
resource "google_firebase_project_location" "basic" {
  provider = google-beta.owner
  project = google_firebase_project.default.project

  location_id = "europe-west"
resource "google_firebase_project_location" "basic" {
  provider    = google-beta
  project     = google_firebase_project.default.project
  location_id = var.location_id

Review your Terraform file for Google best practices

Shisho Cloud, our free checker to make sure your Terraform configuration follows best practices, is available (beta).


The following arguments are supported:

  • location_id - (Required) The ID of the default GCP resource location for the Project. The location must be one of the available GCP resource locations.

  • project - (Optional) The ID of the project in which the resource belongs. If it is not provided, the provider project is used.

In addition to the arguments listed above, the following computed attributes are exported:

  • id - an identifier for the resource with format projects/[[project]]

Explanation in Terraform Registry

Sets the default Google Cloud Platform (GCP) resource location for the specified FirebaseProject. This method creates an App Engine application with a default Cloud Storage bucket, located in the specified locationId. This location must be one of the available GCP resource locations. After the default GCP resource location is finalized, or if it was already set, it cannot be changed. The default GCP resource location for the specified FirebaseProject might already be set because either the GCP Project already has an App Engine application or defaultLocation.finalize was previously called with a specified locationId. Any new calls to defaultLocation.finalize with a different specified locationId will return a 409 error.

Warning: This resource is in beta, and should be used with the terraform-provider-google-beta provider. See Provider Versions for more details on beta resources. To get more information about ProjectLocation, see:
