Ruby Client for the Cloud Key Management Service (KMS) API
API Client library for the Cloud Key Management Service (KMS) API
Manages keys and performs cryptographic operations in a central cloud service, for direct use by other cloud resources and applications.
Actual client classes for the various versions of this API are defined in
versioned client gems, with names of the form
google-cloud-kms is a convenience wrapper library that brings the
verisoned gems in as dependencies, and provides high-level methods for

See also the Product Documentation for more usage information.
$ gem install google-cloud-kms
In order to use this library, you first need to go through the following steps:
- Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
- Enable billing for your project.
- Enable the API.
- Set up authentication.
Migrating from 1.x versions
The 2.0 release of the google-cloud-kms client is a significant upgrade based on a next-gen code generator, and includes substantial interface changes. Existing code written for earlier versions of this library will likely require updates to use this version. See the MIGRATING.md document for more information.
To enable logging for this library, set the logger for the underlying gRPC library.
The logger that you set may be a Ruby stdlib
Logger as shown below,
that will write logs to Cloud Logging. See grpc/logconfig.rb
and the gRPC spec_helper.rb for additional information.
Configuring a Ruby stdlib logger:
require "logger" module MyLogger LOGGER = Logger.new $stderr, level: Logger::WARN def logger LOGGER end end # Define a gRPC module-level logger method before grpc/logconfig.rb loads. module GRPC extend MyLogger end
Supported Ruby Versions
This library is supported on Ruby 2.4+.
Google provides official support for Ruby versions that are actively supported by Ruby Core—that is, Ruby versions that are either in normal maintenance or in security maintenance, and not end of life. Currently, this means Ruby 2.4 and later. Older versions of Ruby may still work, but are unsupported and not recommended. See https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/branches/ for details about the Ruby support schedule.
