Hmm. It looks like Google APIs do not allow managing Firebase projects via normal
gcloud auth
authenticated users but you are forced to use a service account? Is this true and is there any way to go around this? I mean,
gcloud auth
is much better security wise for IaC unless one setups infrastructure setup into CI/CD but then one cannot really do development locally. Any tips or tricks or am I screwed?
