Connect to Google Cloud object storage

To use datasets that you keep in Google Cloud storage buckets as a data source for synthetic data, you need to create a Google Cloud connector in MOSTLY AI.

If you want to keep the generated synthetic data in a separate bucket, you need another Google Cloud connector that points to the bucket.


To create a Google Cloud bucket connector, you need the contents of your Google Cloud key file and the name of the bucket where you keep your original data.
