Hi, don't know if you already figured it out but for you or anyone else running into the same issue I solved it by doing the following.

  1. Put the entire jwt json file you get from google into an env variable in the .env file.
    example: SOME_VAR='{"key": "value"}'
    NOTE The entire json file has to be on a single line

  2. Then read in the value in your index.js file
    example: const { SOME_VAR } = process.env; //JSON

3.Parse it.
example: const someVar = JSON.parse(SOME_VAR);

  1. Use dot notation to access that key and pass it wherever you need it. example: someVar.key // 'value'
