Turn on Product Requests

If you want to allow end-users in your organization to request new Cloud Marketplace products for their projects and use cases, you can turn on Product Requests. This allows users to create the following requests:

  • Procurement requests: Users can request that you procure products for use within your organization.

  • Access requests: If you've turned on Google Private Marketplace, users can request that you add products to your organization's private marketplace.

Users search for a product in Google Cloud Marketplace, and then click the Request product button to send a message to the accounts with the relevant roles for their organization. The requester can include information about the request in these messages, such as a business rationale or a required plan or license. The administrators then review the request and either approve or deny the request, based on their own internal review and procurement processes.
