Creating a Cloud Data Fusion instance

This page explains how to create a Cloud Data Fusion instance.

Before you begin

Creating an instance


If the API is enabled, the Cloud Data Fusion section in the GCP Console shows an Instances page where you can manage your Cloud Data Fusion instances. When no instances exist, the page has a link to create an instance, along with some useful links to documentation and samples.

  1. To create a Cloud Data Fusion instance, click the Create Instance link at the top of the section.


  2. Enter a name and a description for your instance. The name must start with a lowercase letter followed by up to 63 lowercase letters, numbers, or underscores.
  3. Specify the zone in which to create the instance
  4. Select the Cloud Data Fusion edition. For information about editions, see the pricing page.
  5. Specify any additional settings. If you do not specify a setting, the following defaults are used.

    Logging and Monitoring
    Enable Stackdriver logging service
    Option to enable Stackdriver Logging.

    Enable Stackdriver monitoring service
    Option to enable Stackdriver Monitoring.
    The resource labels for the instance to use to annotate any related underlying resources, such as Compute Engine VMs. Label keys and label values can only contain letters, numbers, dashes, and underscores. Label keys must start with a letter or number.

  6. Click Create.


Create an instance:

To create a Cloud Data Fusion instance with the Cloud Data Fusion REST API, construct an instances.create API request, filling in the Instance resource with your configuration information.

Setting up permissions

After creating an instance you need one additional step to grant the service account associated with the instance permissions on your project.

  1. Navigate to the instance detail page by clicking the instance name.
  2. Copy the service account
  3. Navigate to the IAM Page of your project.
  4. On the IAM Permissions page, grant the service account the Cloud Data Fusion API Service Agent role, by clicking the Add button.
  5. Click Save

Once these steps are done, you can start using Cloud Data Fusion by clicking the View Instance link on the Cloud Data Fusion instances page, or the details page of an instance.
