Documentation

If you have a question about the Google Maps Platform, first check our documentation:

Contacting support

Project Owners, Project Editors, and Tech Support Editors can create support cases. If you don’t have one of these roles, contact your Project Owner or Organization Admin to get access.

All Premium Plan customers can contact support by filing a case in the Maps Support page in the Google Cloud Platform Console.

  1. Visit the Google Maps Platform Support page in the Google Cloud Platform Console.
  2. Select the project related to your question, in the top dropdown bar of the Google Cloud Platform Console.
    • To file a technical support case, you must have an Owner, Editor, or Tech Support Editor role.
    • To file a billing support case, you must have an Owner or Editor role.
  3. Fill out the fields in detail on the Create a new support case section. It may take a minute to create your case.

Granting support access

A Project Owner or an Organization Admin can grant all available roles from the IAM page.

  1. Open the IAM page in the Google Cloud Platform Console.
  2. Select Select a project > choose a project from the dropdown > Open.
  3. Select Add, then enter the new member’s email address.
    • You can add individuals, service accounts, or Google Groups as members, but every project must have at least one individual as a member.
  4. Select the member’s role. For best security practices, we strongly recommend giving the member the lowest permissions needed. Members with Project Owner permissions are able to manage all aspects of the project, including shutting it down.
    • To grant Project Owner or Project Editor permissions, choose the appropriate role under Project.
    • To limit a member’s permissions to filing technical support cases, choose the Tech Support Editor role under Support.
  5. Save your changes.

Community support

Google's Developer Relations team participates on Stack Overflow—a collaborative question-and-answer site for programmers. It's a great place to ask technical questions about developing and maintaining Google Maps Platform applications. Look for and use the google-maps tag and other Maps API-specific tags such as google-maps-api-3 for the Maps JavaScript API.
