Google Service accounts are used to allow Matillion Data Loader access to specific resources required for CDC, such as Cloud Storage buckets and Secret Managers. It's recommended you make a Google Service Account specifically for Matillion Data Loader and give access to only the resources you make as part of the CDC setup process.
