The database default does not exist for project…

I opened up a new Google Cloud project to act as a staging project and forgot to set up a Firestore database for the project, and got the following error:

google.api_core.exceptions.NotFound: 404 The database default does not exist for project magicalnews Please visit[projectname] to add a Cloud Datastore or Cloud Firestore database

Google Cloud Logging

Obviously to fix this you need to create a Cloud Firestore or Cloud Datastore, but I will say I love the detailed error message and the direct link to fix the problem. I’m noticing a lot of small developer experience fixes and filing down of “sharp edges” – I hope they continue because the developer experience on Google Cloud is just getting better and better.
