Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs

Overview

The Google APIs Explorer is a tool that helps you explore various Google APIs interactively. With the APIs Explorer, you can:

  • Browse quickly through available APIs and versions.
  • See methods available for each API and what parameters they support along with inline documentation.
  • Execute requests for any method and see responses in real time.
  • Make authenticated and authorized API calls.
  • Search across all services, methods, and your recent requests to quickly find what you are looking for.

The APIs Explorer uses its own API key whenever it makes a request. When you use the APIs Explorer to make a request, it displays the request syntax, which includes a placeholder labeled {YOUR_API_KEY}. If you want to make the same request in your application, you need to replace this placeholder with your own API key.

What you'll do

  • Create a Cloud Storage bucket.

  • Upload an image to Cloud Storage and make it public.

  • Make a request to the Vision API with that image.
