1. Firebase (Realtime Database)
  2. Google Cloud Platform requirements


Rownd leverages the power of the Google Cloud Platform to configure the automated sync between Rownd and the Firebase Realtime Database instance. As such, there are prerequisites that Rownd requires prior to setting up a new integration.

Billing Account

The GCP Project where your Realtime Database instance resides must have an associated billing account enabled. Go here for help establishing a billing account.


Rownd will request access to your GCP account via OAuth 2.0 scopes during the authentication step. You must have and provide sufficient permissions to satisfy Rownds’s request. See the \[Access Requirements\]({{< ref "\_index.md#access-requirements" >}}) section below for a full list of permissions that Rownd needs.
