Known issues

If you find any way in which the service isn't working as well as it could be, let us know, but first, check this list to make sure we're not already working on it.

  • Limitations in Cloud console:
    • Cloud Audit Logs for Cloud KMS in the Activity stream read like generic logs, and are not easily read by a human.
    • Currently, you can only display and manage up to 1,000 keys in the Cloud console. If you would like to manage more keys, use the gcloud Command Line Interface. This limitation also applies to viewing key rings and versions.
  • Client libraries are Google API Client Libraries instead of the newer Cloud Client Libraries. This is for better compatibility with the use of Cloud KMS from within Google App Engine.
    • Batch operations in the libraries are not possible.
