See some examples of the Could not connect to Google Cloud Storage server Event messages:

  • Action "Connect to Google Cloud Storage" could not connect to "storage.googleapis.com". Error: Invalid argument. Connection failed.
  • Could not connect to "storage.googleapis.com.local". Error: Host "storage.googleapis.com.local" does not exist. Could not resolve hostname "storage.googleapis.com.local": No such host is known. Connection failed.

  • Could not connect to "storage.googleapis.com/my-bucket-20242389590283409823-stk". Error: The specified bucket does not exist. Connection failed.


The error may be caused by connectivity issues such as network failure, firewall or antimalware whitelisting.

Make sure that the local machine can connect to the remote server—no firewall is blocking outgoing connections on the client, and a connection to the storage.googleapis.com can be established.

Double check that your provided hash-based message authentication code (HMAC) keys are valid and are in supported format. To pinpoint the problem, enable the connection debugging option.
