GAE: remote_api and Application Default Credentials

Since today i've been using remote_api (python) to access the datastore on GAE.

I usually do

remote_api_shell.py -s <mydomain>
.

Today I tried and it fails, the error is:


oauth2client.client.ApplicationDefaultCredentialsError: The
Application Default Credentials are not available. They are available
if running in Google Compute Engine. Otherwise, the environment
variable GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS must be defined pointing to a
file defining the credentials. See
https://developers.google.com/accounts/docs/application-default-credentials
for more information.


I cannot understand why it asks me that.

the wole output is this

stefano@~/gc$ remote_api_shell.py -s ....

Answer

The solution is to run gcloud auth login in the shell and give the grant again
