Migrating projects  |  Resource Manager Documentation  |  Google Cloud (2022)

This guide explains how to move a project between organization resources orplaces within a resource hierarchy.

The project resource is the base-level organizing entity in aGoogle Cloud organization resource. Projects are created underorganization resources, and can be placed under folders or the organizationresource itself, forming theresource hierarchy.You may need to migrate projects between organization resources due toacquisitions, regulatory requirements, and separation between business units,among other things.

You can use the Resource Manager API to move projects across organization resourcesor to another place in the resource hierarchy of its current organizationresource. The Resource Manager API also lets you roll back the migration, moving theproject back to its original place in the resource hierarchy.

Create a migration plan

The most important thing to consider during a project move is how the migrationwill impact the services running inside the project. TheResource Manager API treats the project resource and all services running underneathit as a single unit, meaning that no configuration changes will be appliedinside the project.

While the migration will not make direct configuration changes to the project,the change in the resource hierarchy is likely to have an impact on thefunction of the project and its running services. Inherited policies, such as Identity and Access Managementor organization policies, will not move with the project during migration, onlypolicies and service accounts that are attached directly to the resource. Thismay cause unintended behavior after the migration is complete.

Moving your project might also result in organization policyviolations,depending on the destination organization resource's organization policies.

Before moving your project, you should consider creating a migration plan todetermine the readiness of both your organization and the projects you want tomove. In this migration plan, take inventory of each of theservices that your project is running, and any other services that may beimpacted by the move, or by the resource hierarchy in the destination for yourproject.

Inventory overview

Use Cloud Asset Inventory to create an overview ofresources in use, including Identity and Access Management policies. You can use this overview tohelp outline your migration plan.

You can also use Cloud Asset Inventory to transfer this data intoBigQuery. This will allow you to query the data using SQL, which iseasier to read compared to interpreting JSON-formatted data. For informationabout exporting this data, seeExporting to BigQuery.

Policy verification

When you migrate your project, it will no longer inherit the policies from itscurrent place in the resource hierarchy, and will be subject to the effectivepolicy evaluation at its destination. We recommend making sure that theeffective policies at the project's destination match as much as possible thepolicies that the project had in its source location.

Any policy that is applied directly to the project will still be attached afterthe migration is complete. Applying policies directly to the project is a goodway to verify that the correct policies are applied from the moment the move iscomplete.

Identity and Access Management policies and organization policies are inherited through theresource hierarchy, and can block a service from functioning if not setproperly. Determine the effective policy at the project's destination in yourresource hierarchy to ensure the policy aligns with your governance objectives.

Manage encrypted keys

You should verify if your project has a customer-managed encrypted key or otherCloud Key Management Service enabled on it. Cryptographic keys are owned by the project, and auser with owner access to that project will therefore be able to manage andperform cryptographic operations on keys in Cloud KMS in thatproject.

For more information, seeSeparation of duties.

Preview features

You can enable preview features on organization, folder, or project resources.If you have enabled an alpha or beta feature on the project to be moved, thisfeature should continue to function after the migration. If the preview featureis private and not allowlisted for the destination organization resource, youwill not be able to make any configuration changes after the move is complete.

Rollback plan

If you discover that something is not working on any of the projects you havemigrated, you can move them back to their original location. In order to dothat, you need to have the necessary IAM permissions and set therequired organization policies so that you can run the project migrationin reverse.

For a list of permissions required, seeAssign permissions. For the organization policies youneed to configure to allow a project migration, seeConfigure organization policies.

Dedicated import and export folders

Policy inheritance can cause unintended effects when you are migrating aproject, both in the source and destination organization resources. You canmitigate this risk by creating specific folders to hold only projects for exportand import, and ensuring that the same policies are inherited by the folders inboth organization resources. You can also set permissions on these folders thatwill be inherited to the projects moved within them, helping to accelerate theproject migration process.

When planning a migration, consider setting up a dedicated source folder first.To do this, create a folder for each organization resource to which you plan toexport projects. Then, set an organization policy on these folders, each withthe constraints/resourcemanager.allowedExportDestinations constraint set tothe single organization resource to which you want to export projects.

For example, you could set up Export to Marketing Org andExport to Sales Org folders, each with appropriate organization policyconstraints set.

Similarly, set up dedicated import folders in the destination organizationresource, one for each organization resource from which you want to importprojects. To do this, create a folder for each organization resource from whichyou plan to import projects. Then, set an organization policy on these folders,each with the constraints/resourcemanager.allowedImportSources constraint setto the single organization resource from which you want to import projects.

For example, you could set up Import from Marketing Org andImport from App Development Org folders, each with appropriate organizationpolicy constraints set.

On each of the import and export folders, assign the person who will be movingthe projects the roles/resourcemanager.projectMover role. This role will beinherited by any projects that are contained within these folders, giving theuser the ability to perform the move operations on any project that is movedinto those folders.

After you have completed your project migration, you should remove thesededicated folders.

For information about setting organization policies, see Configureorganization policies.

Assign permissions

You need the following permissions to move a project betweenorganization resources.

To gain these permissions, ask your administrator to grant the suggested role atthe appropriate level of theresource hierarchy.

Project move permissions

To move a project, you need the following roles on the project, its parentresource, and the destination resource:

  • Project IAM Admin (roles/resourcemanager.projectIamAdmin) on the projectthat you want to move
  • Project Mover (roles/resourcemanager.projectMover) on the project's parentresource
  • If the destination resource is a folder: Project Mover(roles/resourcemanager.projectMover) on the destination resource
  • If the destination resource is an organization: Project Creator(roles/resourcemanager.projectCreator) on the destination resource

These roles give you the following required permissions:

Required permissions

  • resourcemanager.projects.getIamPolicy on the project you want to move
  • resourcemanager.projects.update on the project you want to move
  • resourcemanager.projects.move on the project's parent resource
  • If the destination resource is a folder: resourcemanager.projects.move on the destination resource
  • If the destination resource is an organization: resourcemanager.projects.create on the destination resource

You can also gain these permissions with a customrole, or other predefined roles.

Organization policy permissions

On the source and destination organization resources, you must have theroles/orgpolicy.policyAdmin role, which grants permission to create and manageorganization policies.

Billing account permissions

Cloud Billing accounts can be used across organization resources. Moving aproject from one organization resource to another won't impact billing, andcharges will continue against the old billing account. However, organizationresource moves often also include a requirement to move to a new billingaccount.

To get the permissions that you need to change the project's billing account, ask your administrator to grant you the following IAM roles:

  • Billing Account User (roles/billing.user) on the destination billing account
  • Project billing manager (roles/billing.projectManager) on the project

For more information about granting roles, see Manage access.

These predefined roles contain the permissions required to change the project's billing account. To see the exact permissions that are required, expand the Required permissions section:

Required permissions

  • billing. resourceAssociations.create on the destination billing account
  • resourcemanager.projects.createBillingAssignment on the project
  • resourcemanager.projects.deleteBillingAssignment on the project

You might also be able to get these permissions with custom roles or other predefined roles.

Configure organization policies

To move a project resource to a new organization resource, you must first applyan organization policy that will define the organization resources to which theproject can be moved. You must also set an organization policy in thedestination that defines the organization resources from which projects can beimported.

On the parent resource to the project you want to move, set an organizationpolicy that includes the constraints/resourcemanager.allowedExportDestinationsconstraint. This will define the target destination as a valid location to whichyou can migrate the project.

On the destination resource, set an organization policy that includes theconstraints/resourcemanager.allowedImportSources constraint. This will definethe source as a valid location from which you can migrate your project.

For example, say you had a project my-test-project that existed under anorganization resource with the ID 12345678901, and you wanted to move it to anew organization resource for your secondary business unit, with the ID45678901234.

You would set an organization policy on organizations/12345678901with theconstraints/resourcemanager.allowedExportDestinations constraint enforced andunder:organizations/45678901234 set as an allowed_value.

Then, set an organization policy on organizations/45678901234 with theconstraints/resourcemanager.allowedImportSources constraint enforced andunder:organizations/12345678901 set as an allowed_value.

Once these organization policies are enforced, you will be able to movemy-test-project from organizations/12345678901 toorganizations/45678901234, assuming you have the permissions noted inAssign permissions.

Change the billing account for a project

Cloud Billing accounts can be used across organization resources. Moving aproject from one organization resource to another won't impact billing, andcharges will continue against the old billing account. However, organizationresource moves often also include a requirement to move to a new billingaccount.

To change the billing account, do the following:

  1. Go to the Billing page in the Google Cloud console.
    Go to the Billing page
  2. Click the name of the billing account you want to change.
  3. Under Projects linked to this billing account, find the name of theProject to move and then click the menu button to the right.
  4. Click Change billing, and then select the new billing account.
  5. Click Set account.

Charges already incurred that have not yet been reported in the transactionhistory will be billed to the former billing account. This can include chargesfrom up to two days prior to when the project was moved.

Move a billing account between organization resources

A billing account can be moved from one organization resource to another,although this isn't often a necessary step. Most existing organization resourceswill already have a billing account that should be used instead. If you need tomigrate an existing billing account:

  1. Get the roles/billing.admin role on the source and destinationorganization resources.
  2. Go to the Billing page in the Google Cloud console.
    Go to the Billing page
  3. Click on the name of the billing account you want to move.
  4. At the top of the Account Management page, click Change organization.
  5. Select the destination organization resource, and then click Ok.

The billing account is now associated with the specified organization resource.

Perform the migration

If you have the appropriateIAM permissions and the requiredorganization policies are enforced, you canuse the Resource Manager API to move a project resource.

(Video) How to Use Folders in Cloud Resource Manager

gcloud

To migrate a project to another organization resource, run the following command:

gcloud beta projects move PROJECT_ID \ --organization ORGANIZATION_ID

You can also specify a folder as the target resource, with the followingcommand:

gcloud beta projects move PROJECT_ID \ --folder FOLDER_ID

Where:

  • PROJECT_ID is the ID or number of the project you wish tomigrate.
  • ORGANIZATION_ID is the ID of the organization resource to which you wantto move the project. You can only specify one target, either anorganization resource or a folder.
  • FOLDER_ID is the ID of the folder to which you wantto move the project. You can only specify one target, either a folderor an organization resource.

API

Using the v1 Resource Manager API, you can move a project by setting itsparent field to the ID of the destination resource.

To migrate a project:

  • Get the project object using projects.get() method.
  • Set its parent field to the organization resource ID of the organizationresource, or the folder ID of the folder to which you are moving it.
  • Update the project object using projects.update() method.

The following code snippet demonstrates the steps above:

 project = crm.projects().get(projectId=flags.projectId).execute() project['parent'] = { 'type': 'organization', 'id': flags.organizationId } project = crm.projects().update( projectId=flags.projectId, body=project).execute()

Roll back a migration

If you have mistakenly moved a project, you can roll back the operation byperforming the move again, with the old source as the new destination, and theold destination as the new source. You must have the necessaryIAM permissions and organization policies enforced to allow thisas if this were an entirely new migration.

Handling special cases

Migrating projects with no organization resource

You can migrate a project that is not associated with an organization resourceinto an organization resource. However, you can't change it back toNo organization using this process. If you have a project that isassociated with your organization resource and you want to revert it toNo organization, reach out to your Support representative for assistance.

The process of migrating a project not associated with an organization resourceis similar to the process for migrating a project between organizationresources, but does not require all of the steps involved in the migration plan.To migrate a project into an organization resource, you should followthese steps:

  1. Verify the impact on this project of thepolicies it will inherit.

  2. Create a dedicated import folder in the destinationorganization resource, if desired.

  3. Assign Identity and Access Management permissions for the project and the destination parent asdetailed in Assign permissions.

  4. Determine if you need to change thebilling account.

Then, you can perform the migration.

Console

To migrate a project into an organization resource:

  1. Open the IAM & admin > Settings page in the Google Cloud console.

    Open the Settings page

  2. Select the Project picker at the top of the page.

  3. From the Organization picker, select No Organization. If you arenot associated with any organization resource, theOrganization picker will not appear, and you can skip this step.

  4. Select the project you want to migrate.

    Migrating projects | Resource Manager Documentation | Google Cloud (1)

  5. At the top of the page, click Migrate.

  6. On the Organization drop-down list, select the organization resourceyou want to migrate your project to.

    (Video) GCP | Google Cloud Organization Setup | Organization Account, Billing , Folders, Projects | DEMO

gcloud

To migrate a project into an organization resource, run the followingcommand:

gcloud beta projects move PROJECT_ID \ --organization ORGANIZATION_ID

Where:

  • PROJECT_ID is the ID of the project you wish to move into theorganization resource.
  • ORGANIZATION_ID is the ID of the organization resource to whichyou wish to move the project.

API

Using the Resource Manager API, you can move a project into the organizationresource by setting its parent field to the organization resource ID ofthe organization resource.

To migrate a project into the organization resource:

  • Get the project object using projects.get() method.
  • Set its parent field to the organization resource ID of the organizationresource.
  • Update the project object using projects.update() method.

You can't change the parent field after you set it.

The following code snippet demonstrates the steps above:

 project = crm.projects().get(projectId=flags.projectId).execute() project['parent'] = { 'type': 'organization', 'id': flags.organizationId }

Shared VPC projects can be migrated followingcertain conditions. First, a user with the roles/orgpolicy.policyAdmin role inthe source organization must set an organization policy containing theconstraints/resourcemanager.allowEnabledServicesForExport constraint on theparent of the project to be exported. This constraint should listSHARED_VPC as an allowed_value.

The Shared VPC host project must be migrated first, followed by all ofits service projects. We recommend that you match the firewall rules betweenthe organizations at the source and target locations, which should minimizepotential issues and avoid any downtime for the projects and network during themigration. We do not offer guarantees about the healthiness of your network ifyou leave some service projects in the source organization indefinitely whilemigrating others.

If you move the host project, you can move it back to the source organization,but once you begin moving the service projects, you must move all of them beforeyou can move the host project again.

Custom Identity and Access Management roles

Custom Identity and Access Management roles can be createdat the organization level to provide granular control of access to resources,but they are only valid in the organization resource in which they are created.If you try to move a project that contains an IAM policy bindingof a user to an organization-level custom IAM role, the move willfail with a failed precondition error, explaining that the role in question doesnot exist in the destination organization resource.

To list all custom IAM roles at the level of your organizationresource, run the following Google Cloud CLI command:

gcloud iam roles list --organization ORGANIZATION_ID

Where the ORGANIZATION_ID is the organization resourceID for which you want to list roles. For information on finding yourorganization resource ID, see Creating and managing organization resources.

To get information on a custom Identity and Access Management role in your organization resource,run the following Google Cloud CLI command:

gcloud iam roles describe --organization ORGANIZATION_ID \ ROLE_ID

Where:

  • ORGANIZATION_ID is the organization resource ID of therole's parent organization resource.

  • ROLE_ID is the name of the role you want to describe.

To work around the failed precondition error, you should create equivalentproject-level custom roles for each of the organization-level custom roles thatthe project inherits. Then, remove the IAM role bindings thatreference the organization-level custom roles.

Once the project has been migrated, you can update the IAMpolicies to use the organization-level custom roles in the destinationorganization resource.

For more information about custom roles, seeCreating and managing custom roles.

Bucket Lock

Cloud Storage Bucket Lock allows you to configurea data retention policy on a Cloud Storage bucket that governs how longobjects in the bucket must be retained. The bucket lock is protected using alien to prevent accidentally deleting the project.

The retention policy and lien are kept with the project during a migration,but you should be aware if you are moving a project with a bucket lockenforced, and prevent accidental moves.

VPC Service Controls security perimeters

VPC Service Controlsallows users to set up a project-based security perimeter around theirGoogle Cloud services to mitigate data exfiltration risks. You cannot migratea project that is protected by a VPC Service Controls security perimeter.

To remove a project from a security perimeter, seeManaging service perimeters.Projects in VPC Service Controls perimeters may not be blocked from being moved acrossorganization resources for up to a day after a perimeter has been created orupdated. It may take several hours for the project to be movable after it hasbeen removed from the service perimeter.

Dedicated Interconnect

We recommend migrating projects with Dedicated Interconnectobjects and projects with VLAN attachments to theseDedicated Interconnect objects together. While projects withDedicated Interconnect objects or VLAN attachments connected tothem can be migrated and will function between organization resources, you willnot be able to create new VLAN attachments across the organization resourcesplit.

Configuration changes made to a project in one organization resource that has aDedicated Interconnect object attached or a VLAN attachment tothe Dedicated Interconnect object may not propagate to theother, so we recommend not leaving such projects split across organizationresources for very long if possible.

(Video) Infrastructure as a Code with Deployment Manager (Cloud Next '19)

Partner Interconnect

There are no special considerations needed when migrating projects withPartner Interconnect.

Cross-project service accounts

If you are moving a project that has across-project service accountattached to it, that service account will still function in thedestination organization resource. That project will continue to work with theattached service account even if there is an organization policy thatrestricts the domain of thatproject.

If you are moving a project that owns a cross-project service account attachedto another project in the source organization resource, the service account willstill function in the destination organization resource. However, you will notbe able to use the service account on any resources that have a domainrestriction organization policy applied to them that restricts them to thesource organization resource's domain.

For example, assume you have project-A, in organizations/12345678901. Thisproject has serviceAccount-1 attached to it, which is set up as across-project service account. project-B and project-C, also inorganizations/12345678901, use serviceAccount-1 as well.

You have applied an organization policy with the domain restriction constraintto project-C, which only allows it to access the domain oforganizations/12345678901.

If you add serviceAccount-1 to the IAM binding for project-C,and then move project-A to organizations/45678901234, the service accountwill function.

If you move project-A to organizations/45678901234, and then try to addserviceAccount-1 to the IAM binding for project-C, thebinding will fail as it violates the domain restriction constraint.

Support cases

If you move a project that has an open support case, you need to reach out toyour Google Support contact to let them know the migration has occurred. Anyprojects that have an open support case with Google will not be able to viewthose support cases until Google Support updates the case metadata to point tothe new organization resource.

OAuth consent screen

If your project is configured to use anInternal OAuth consent screenand you migrate it to another organization resource, only members of thedestination organization resource can authorize requests. It may take up to 24hours for this behavior to take effect. Until then, members of the sourceorganization resource an authorize requests.

The steps below explain how to ensure members of your source organizationresource do not lose access during migration. Consider creating new users inyour destination organization resource for organization resource members so thatyou do not need to change the OAuth consent screen configuration.

To avoid loss of access for members of the source organization resource:

  1. Update the OAuth consent screen to be external instead of internal.

  2. Apps that are marked internal and usesensitive datado not need to apply for app verification. If the app uses sensitive data,then when the consent screen is updated to external, the users of the sourceorganization resource will see anunverified app screenbefore the authorization screen. To avoid this, apply forapp verificationfor the use of sensitive or restricted scopes.

OS Login

If OS Login is enabled inyour source project, assign the roles/compute.osLoginExternalUserIAM role to principals that can access the source project, in thedestination organization resource to avoid those principals losing access.

Attaching service accounts to resources

For most Google Cloud services, users need the iam.serviceAccounts.actAspermission on a service account to attach that service account to aresource. However, in the past, to ease onboarding certain services allowedusers to attach service accounts to resources even if the users didn'thave permission to impersonate the service accounts. This is documentedhere.

If a customer's source organization resource has the legacy behavior (serviceaccounts attachment is possible without the normal role grant) and thedestination organization resource does not, grant roles/iam.serviceAccountUserto users that attach these service accounts to resources. For information aboutimpersonating service accounts, seeImpersonating service accounts.

To see if your organization resource has the legacy behavior, do the following:

  1. In the Google Cloud console, go to the Organization policies page.

    Go to the Organization policies page

  2. From the project selector at the top of the page, choose the organizationresource you want to check for legacy status.

  3. In the filter box at the top of the list of organization policies, enterconstraints/appengine.enforceServiceAccountActAsCheck.

  4. If the appengine.enforceServiceAccountActAsCheck organization policyappears in the list, the organization resource has the legacy behavior.

  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each of the following organization policyconstraints:

    • appengine.enforceServiceAccountActAsCheck
    • dataflow.enforceComputeDefaultServiceAccountCheck
    • dataproc.enforceComputeDefaultServiceAccountCheck
    • composer.enforceServiceAccountActAsCheck
  6. If any of these organization policy constraints appear, your organizationresource uses the legacy behavior.

If the source organization resource has the legacy behavior and the destinationdoes not, grant the roles as mentioned above. If both the source and destinationorganization resources have the legacy behavior, no action is required, butconsider enforcing the policy to prevent unintended impersonation.
