Google Cloud Function- How To Create And Deploy First Cloud Functions.


Why Serverless Computing

Benefits of Cloud Function:

  • Servers provisioning and maintance are not required.
    Automatically scale based on the load. We can say fully managed third-party service.
  • Integrated with other GCP services for monitoring, logging, and debugging capability.
  • Built-in security at the role and per function level based on the principle of least privilege.
  • Different language support is available like Node.js, Python, Go, Java, .NET, Ruby, and PHP.
  • We can use Google Cloud Function to extend other GCP services with custom logic.

Trigger Cloud Function

Cost of Execution

  • Billed for your function’s execution time, metered to the nearest 100 milliseconds. You pay nothing when your function is idle.
  • The First 2 million execution of cloud function is free and after that, you need to pay per invocation $0.40.
  • The costing depends on the factor time taken during execution, no. of time it invoked, and behind the scene how many resources are provisioned.

Cloud Function Deployment Steps

  • Go to the GCP cloud function and select the parameter as per your event-triggered requirement.
Cloud Function Creation\
  • The Source, section selects the programming language and you can write your logic for your event triggering.
  • Here has the main python code and requirement.txt has all dependency or jar names.
  • Click on Deploy means the function is up and running, it performs invocation as per selected event calling or triggering.
Upload gs CSV file to bigquery via Cloud Functions
from import bigquery

print(f"Processing file: {file['name']}.")
file_name_inp = str(file['name'])

file_inp_gen = getcurrentDate('UTC') + '.csv'
if file_inp_gen == file_name_inp:

print('Current date is ' + currDate)
return currDate
def upload_data(file_name_inp):
client = bigquery.Client(project=project_id, location=location_name)
table_ref = client.dataset(dataset_name).table(table_name)
job_config = bigquery.LoadJobConfig()
job_config.write_disposition = bigquery.WriteDisposition.WRITE_TRUNCATE
job_config.skip_leading_rows = 1
# The source format defaults to CSV, so the line below is optional.
job_config.source_format = bigquery.SourceFormat.CSV
uri = base_bucket_loc + "/" + file_name_inp
load_job = client.load_table_from_uri(
uri, table_ref, job_config=job_config
) # API request
print("Starting job {}".format(load_job.job_id))
load_job.result() # Waits for table load to complete.
print("Job finished.")
destination_table = client.get_table(table_ref)
print("Loaded {} rows.".format(destination_table.num_rows))
