In this tutorial, we will cover how to create a Firebase service account to use the Auth REST API. After creating the service account, you will be able to connect your Firebase project to Arengu using the following settings:

  • Project ID
  • Client email
  • Private key

1. Prepare your Firebase project

Go to the Firebase console, select your project and add the "Email/Password" sign-in provider.

Configure a web app in your project settings by selecting the icon “</>”.

  • Add a desired "App name"
  • No need to check "Also set up Firebase Hosting for this app"

Click on “Register app” to continue.


Next, in the project service accounts click on "Generate new private key" for the Firebase web app. 

It will download a JSON file with your private key.

2. Getting your Firebase connection ready

Add a new connection to Arengu by selecting the JSON file.
