Failed to get existing workspaces: querying Cloud Storage failed: storage: bucket doesn't exist

What this error means

You probably get this error when you are trying to run terraform init, and it says your other google account doesn't have access to the bucket

How to resolve

Make sure you have the correct account logged in

gcloud auth list

You should see your work account with an * next to it

Set that as the default account

gcloud auth config set account ""

Login to default account

gcloud auth application-default login

Try again

terraform init

Init and reconfigure

terraform init -reconfigure

Remove terraform artifacts


Only do this if nothing has worked so far!

rm -rvf .terraform*
