I have some docker images I want to store on Google Cloud Repository ( There is no IP precluding public access, so I don't need to jump through the hoops that would otherwise be required to make work for Firecloud. However, I also don't want to be potentially hit with a bunch of data egress fees in case someone wants to download my images out of the Google network. I ought to be able to set the bucket to be 1) publicly readable, and 2) enable requestor-pays. Firecloud does work fine with the bucket set to publicly readable (via, but fails when requestor-pays is also enabled:

error pulling image configuration: error parsing HTTP 400 response body: invalid character '<' looking for beginning of value: "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?><Error><Code>UserProjectMissing</Code><Message>Bucket is a requester pays bucket but no user project provided.</Message></Error>"

Since Firecloud is running on GCP, there should be no egress charges pulling from this multi-regional bucket.
