Google Pub/Sub integration with RudderStack

Use RudderStack to Send Event Data Seamlessly From Sources Into Google Pub/Sub

Once you enable Google Pub/Sub as a destination, you can use RudderStack to send the events to the Pub/Sub topics of your choice in real-time. You can even change the destinations at any point without having to reconfigure any code.

By Adding Google Pub/Sub Support for RudderStack, you can:

  • Track all page-related information, such as the URL of the web page visited by the user
  • Capture all the relevant details about the visiting user and send the information to Google Pub/Sub in real-time
  • Map events with the Pub/Sub topic ID without any hassle

What you can do with Google Pub/Sub

Manually setting up Google Cloud Pub/Sub can be a bit time-consuming. Moreover, managing multiple messages flows in the Pub/Sub environment, setting up Cloud SDKs to perform Pub/Sub operations can hinder efficient use of Google Pub/Sub.

RudderStack allows you to configure Google Pub/Sub as a destination and send your event data from our SDK directly to Google Pub/Sub.

Implement horizontally scalable and highly available communication between independently written applications.

Scale with in-order message delivery with push and pull modes
Ensure scalable delivery with a synchronous, cross-zone message replication, and per-message receipt tracking.

Enable the integration and processing of event streams in Java, Python, and SQL with the Pub/Sub’s Native Dataflow Integration feature.

Work with third-party integrations such as Splunk for logging, and Informatica for data integration.

Implement OSS integrations through the Confluent Cloud for Apache Kafka and Knative Eventing for Kubernetes-based serverless workloads.

Rewind your backlog to any instant or a snapshot to reprocess the messages or fast forward for discarding outdated data.

Simplify your applications with advanced features such as filtering, dead-letter delivery, and exponential backoff.

FAQ

How can we help you?

What is Google Pub/Sub used for?

Google Pub/Sub is a GCP streaming service that enables developers to build and operate various kinds of data streams.

Is it hard to set up Google Pub/Sub?

Difficulty can vary based on your existing tech stack and data streaming needs. Many users choose to simplify implementation by sending data to Google Pub/Sub through secure GCP streaming integration tools like RudderStack.

How much does it cost to integrate Google Pub/Sub with RudderStack?

Pricing for Google Pub/Sub can vary depending on your use case and data volume. RudderStack offers transparent, volume-based event pricing. See RudderStack's pricing.

What is pub/sub in Google Cloud?

Pub/Sub is a modern asynchronous real-time messaging service that allows you to interchange event data between applications and services via its scalable, secure, and highly available transmission through independent applications.

How do I use Google Pub/Sub?

For using Google Pub/Sub, the basic requirement is a Google Account. To get a quick start with basic tasks in Pub/Sub, first, log into the Google Cloud Console and select an existing Google Cloud Console project or create a new one. Next, install and initialize the Cloud SDK (you can also use the gcloud tool if you do not want to install Cloud SDK). Now, create a Pub/Sub topic followed by a new Subscription (Use either Push or Pull mechanism for delivery type) and publish the message. You can now try to pull or Push the Subscription, based on Delivery type. To build a one-to-many Pub/Sub system, you can visit the official Google Pub/Sub documentation.

How does Pub/Sub deliver messages to endpoints?

In Pull delivery, the subscribing application calls the Pub/Sub API. Next, the Pub/Sub server responds with the message and an ack ID. The subscriber then explicitly calls the acknowledge method, using the returned ack ID to acknowledge receipt. In Push delivery, the Pub/Sub server sends every message as an HTTPS request to the pre-configured subscriber endpoint. The endpoint returns an HTTP success status code as acknowledgment. The message is resent if the response is aborted due to any reason.
