apiKeys in Google Cloud

Greetings,

I am using Serverless to deploy a function in Google cloud. On AWS cloud I can use ‘apiKeys’ to generate a new API Key and protect my Lambda function with that API key when I declare the Lambda function as ‘private’ in the serverless.yml. Is there a similar way to generate an API key in Google Cloud? Similar setup in my Google Cloud serverless.yml is not deploying.

I am getting the following error:
Error: Unexpected token : in JSON at position 19

My serverless.yml is:
service: gcp-api-key

provider:
name: google
runtime: nodejs
project: myproject-01
credentials: ~/GCP/Credentials/myproject-01-2fdfdaff.json
apiKeys:
- myApiKey

plugins:

  • serverless-google-cloudfunctions
    package:
    exclude:
    • node_modules/**
    • .gitignore
    • .git/**

functions:
apiKeyTest:
handler: testKey
events:
- http:
path: mypath
method: get
private: true

Any updates on this? In my opinion, this is a must-have.
