Cloud Pub/Sub


The Cloud Pub/Sub component allows messages to be published to a topic on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Other applications can subscribe to these topics to receive such messages.

To publish messages from Matillion ETL, you must first ensure that topics are available to publish to (and ideally, that relevant applications are subscribed to these topics). To view, edit, and create topics, visit the Topics GCP page while logged into your GCP account and project.

Official help for getting starting with Cloud Pub/Sub can be found at Publish and receive messages in Pub/Sub using the Google Cloud console.
