GCP Firestore (Datastore mode)

Detailed information on the GCP Firestore state store component

Setup a GCP Firestone state store


You can use the GCP Datastore emulator to run locally using the instructions here.

You can then interact with the server using localhost:8081.


Follow the instructions here to get started with setting up Firestore in Google Cloud.

Create a Dapr component

The next step is to create a Dapr component for Firestore.

Create the following YAML file named firestore.yaml:

apiVersion: dapr.io/v1alpha1
kind: Component
metadata:
  name: <NAME>
  namespace: <NAMESPACE>
spec:
  type: state.gcp.firestore
  metadata:
  - name: type
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-CREDENTIALS-TYPE> # Required. Example: "serviceaccount"
  - name: project_id
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-PROJECT-ID> # Required.
  - name: private_key_id
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-PRIVATE-KEY-ID> # Required.
  - name: private_key
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-PRIVATE-KEY> # Required.
  - name: client_email
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-CLIENT-EMAIL> # Required.
  - name: client_id
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-CLIENT-ID> # Required.
  - name: auth_uri
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-AUTH-URI> # Required.
  - name: token_uri
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-TOKEN-URI> # Required.
  - name: auth_provider_x509_cert_url
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-AUTH-X509-CERT-URL> # Required.
  - name: client_x509_cert_url
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-CLIENT-x509-CERT-URL> # Required.
  - name: entity_kind
    value: <REPLACE-WITH-ENTITY-KIND> # Optional. default: "DaprState"

Apply the configuration

In Kubernetes

To apply the Firestore state store to Kubernetes, use the kubectl CLI:

kubectl apply -f firestore.yaml

Running locally

To run locally, create a components dir containing the YAML file and provide the path to the dapr run command with the flag --components-path.
