Google Pub/Sub

Google Pub/Sub is the GCP managed service for real-time stream processing
Apica's LogFlow can be used to push data to a PubSub topic with just a few clicks. You can forward data as is, morph the data by stripping down attributes or pick and choose the fields that you want to be sent to the Google PubSub topic


You will need the following before you can configure forwarding to Google PubSub
  1. 1.
    Name of the Google PubSub topic
  2. 2.
    Project id ( full name not an integer ) for your GCP account project where you created the topic
  3. 3.
    Service account access JSON
The service account must have pubsub.topics.publish permissions
You can check your service account json permissions with gcloud cli
$ gcloud auth activate-service-account --project=my-project-123 \
$ gcloud pubsub topics publish my-gcp-topic-1 --message="hello"
- '6470211179713996'
$ gcloud pubsub subscriptions pull my-gcp-topic-1-sub --auto-ack
│ hello │ 6470211179713996 │ │ │ │
