In a recent announcement, Google Cloud shed more light on their plans for Eventarc. Soon, it will become the hub of events from more sources and sinks, enabling a unified event story in Google Cloud and beyond.

What's Eventarc?

As we previously covered, with its Audit Log and Pub/Sub integration, any service with Audit Log integration sending a message to a Pub/Sub topic can be event sources for Eventarc. It's managed service with no clusters to set up or maintain.

Eventarc also offers easy integration with Pub/Sub topics and from different sources It provides consistency and structure to how events are generated, routed, and consumed.

Eventarc Triggers

Eventarc also works with the concept of a trigger. A trigger specifies routing rules from event sources to event sinks. That way, one can listen for new object creation events in Cloud Storage and route them to a Cloud Run service by simply creating an Audit Log trigger.

Triggers are available in the gcloud tool via the command:

gcloud beta eventarc triggers

Eventrac in Cloud Console

Eventarc is also available in Google Cloud Console from which users can also create triggers from the triggers section of Cloud Run:

What's coming Next

Google Cloud plans to further expand this integration without using Audit Logs. Events will soon integrate with other cloud sources including (eg. Firestore, BigQuery, Storage, Gmail, Hangouts, Chat), 3rd party sources (eg. Datadog, PagerDuty). It will also become possible to send events to other Google Cloud sinks (eg. Cloud Functions, Compute Engine, Pub/Sub) and custom sinks (any HTTP target).
