Google Pubsub Error: The Keyfile is not a Valid File

The error came during authentication of pubsub subscriber. The error log is misleading and point to a problm with the service account key file. However, the source code to process the logic is as follows:

# Verify that the keyfile argument is a file.

def verify_keyfile_exists! keyfile
    exists = ::File.file? keyfile
    raise "The keyfile '#{keyfile}' is not a valid file." unless exists

It means if file is not present, raise the exception.


Just check if your key file path is valid.
