    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

    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).

    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:

    Thank you kindly in advance!
