GCP PubSub Profile

The GCP PubSub Profile is used for setting up the Google PubSub Subscription and Topic for a Google Cloud Project. This profile requires the GCP Profile to establish a connection with the GCP Service. Currently, the profile can be used with the following agents:

  • GCP PubSub Subscriber agent


The contents of the menus in the menu bar may change depending on which configuration type has been opened in the currently displayed tab. The  GCP PubSub Profile uses the standard menu items and buttons that are visible for all configurations, and these are described in Build View.

The Edit menu is specific for the  GCP PubSub Profile configurations.
