    1. Log in to GCP at console.cloud.google.com. Navigate to IAM & Admin > Service Accounts, then click “Create Service Account”.

    7. Locate the file download in Step 4 above on your local computer, and copy and paste this into the window, then click “Blindfold”. Although not required, it is recommended confirm the following additional fields:
      Secret Info: Blindfold Secret
      Policy: Built-in
      Build-in policies: shared/ves-io-allow-volterra
      Type: Text
