Hello all, I’m happy to announce that you can now change the service account or access scopes on a stopped VM. This feature is available to all users via a beta command, as documented at https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/access/create-enable-service-accounts-for-instances#changeserviceaccountandscopes
Thanks for your patience while we completed deploying this feature.
Note, we are still planning to add the ability to change scopes on a running VM in a future update (it’s at the very top of our list, we know it is a highly requested feature).Jeff Welling commented
It's been over a year since the last update, is there any news to share?
If this is indeed being worked on, could you please post a link to the public Google issue tracker so that we can Star the issue and follow along?
Here's a link to an unrelated issue to demonstrate what I'm talking about: https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/35904733
Thank you kindly in advance!
