Dataflow - Create Job task

The Dataflow - Create Job task lets you create a job in Cloud Dataflow to run a data pipeline built using one of the Apache Beam SDKs.

Cloud Dataflow is a fully managed Google Cloud service for running stream and Batch data processing pipelines.

Before you begin

Ensure that you perform the following tasks in your Google Cloud project before configuring the Dataflow - Create Job task:

  1. Enable the Dataflow API (

    Enable the Dataflow API

  2. Create an authentication profile. Application Integration uses an authentication profile to connect to an authentication endpoint for the Dataflow - Create Job task.

    For information about granting additional roles or permissions to a service account, see Granting, changing, and revoking access.

Configure the Dataflow - Create Job task

  1. In the Google Cloud console, go to the Application Integration page.

    Go to Application Integration

  2. In the navigation menu, click Integrations.

    The Integrations List page appears.

  3. Select an existing integration or create a new integration by clicking Create integration.

    If you are creating a new integration:

    1. Enter a name and description in the Create Integration dialog.
    2. Select a Region for the integration from the list of supported regions.
    3. Click Create.

    This opens the integration in the integration designer.

  4. In the integration designer navigation bar, click +Add a task/trigger > Tasks to view the list of available tasks.
  5. Click and place the Dataflow - Create Job element in the integration designer.
  6. Click the Dataflow - Create Job element on the designer to view the Dataflow - Create Job task configuration pane.
  7. Go to Authentication, and select an existing authentication profile that you want to use.

    Optional. If you have not created an authentication profile prior to configuring the task, Click + New authentication profile and follow the steps as mentioned in Create a new authentication profile.
