Add external user to Google Cloud Platform Organization


Sometimes you need to add external users to your Google Cloud Platform for maintenance or external contractors.


Navigate to Google Cloud Console

Use the project Selector at the top left of the window to open the Projects window


Select the top line item that will be your companies' domain.


Once you have selected the Domain, on the left, click the Hamburger menu and click IAM

I cant see IAM at the top

This is because your console may be different. Use the search bar and search for IAM
