Firebase to sync with Algolia


I’am triggering a cloud function in Firebase to sync with Algolia and got this message:
“Billing account not configured. External network is not accessible and quotas are severely limited. Configure billing account to remove these restrictions.”

I have got a free plan subscription, It is probably the issue ?


If memory serves me right, Google requires you to enable billing to use Cloud Functions and/or make external HTTP calls outside the Google Cloud network (e.g. to Algolia). Easiest way to enable is via Console, as per this quickstart guide:

Hi Chad,

Thanks, that’s right this is a Google subscription issue.
