Create a GCP Pub/Sub

You can use either “explicit” or “implicit” credentials to configure access to your GCP pubsub instance. If using explicit, most fields are required. Implicit relies on dapr running under a Kubernetes service account (KSA) mapped to a Google service account (GSA) which has the necessary permissions to access pubsub. In implicit mode, only the projectId attribute is needed, all other are optional.

Follow the instructions here on setting up Google Cloud Pub/Sub system.
