Enumerations

HttpMethod

static

number

The HTTP method used to execute the task.

Value

HTTP_METHOD_UNSPECIFIED

HTTP method unspecified

POST

HTTP POST

GET

HTTP GET

HEAD

HTTP HEAD

PUT

HTTP PUT

DELETE

HTTP DELETE

State

static

number

State of the queue.

Value

STATE_UNSPECIFIED

Unspecified state.

RUNNING

The queue is running. Tasks can be dispatched.

If the queue was created using Cloud Tasks and the queue has had no activity (method calls or task dispatches) for 30 days, the queue may take a few minutes to re-activate. Some method calls may return NOT_FOUND and tasks may not be dispatched for a few minutes until the queue has been re-activated.

PAUSED

Tasks are paused by the user. If the queue is paused then Cloud Tasks will stop delivering tasks from it, but more tasks can still be added to it by the user.

DISABLED

The queue is disabled.

A queue becomes DISABLED when queue.yaml or queue.xml is uploaded which does not contain the queue. You cannot directly disable a queue.

When a queue is disabled, tasks can still be added to a queue but the tasks are not dispatched.

To permanently delete this queue and all of its tasks, call DeleteQueue.

View

static

number

The view specifies a subset of Task data.

When a task is returned in a response, not all information is retrieved by default because some data, such as payloads, might be desirable to return only when needed because of its large size or because of the sensitivity of data that it contains.

Value

VIEW_UNSPECIFIED

Unspecified. Defaults to BASIC.

BASIC

The basic view omits fields which can be large or can contain sensitive data.

This view does not include the body in AppEngineHttpRequest. Bodies are desirable to return only when needed, because they can be large and because of the sensitivity of the data that you choose to store in it.

FULL

All information is returned.

Authorization for FULL requires cloudtasks.tasks.fullView Google IAM permission on the Queue resource.

Abstract types

AppEngineHttpQueue

static

App Engine HTTP queue.

The task will be delivered to the App Engine application hostname specified by its AppEngineHttpQueue and AppEngineHttpRequest. The documentation for AppEngineHttpRequest explains how the task's host URL is constructed.

Using AppEngineHttpQueue requires appengine.applications.get Google IAM permission for the project and the following scope:

https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform

Property

Parameter

appEngineRoutingOverride

Object

Overrides for the task-level app_engine_routing.

If set, app_engine_routing_override is used for all tasks in the queue, no matter what the setting is for the task-level app_engine_routing.

This object should have the same structure as AppEngineRouting

See also

google.cloud.tasks.v2beta3.AppEngineHttpQueue definition in proto format

AppEngineHttpRequest

static

App Engine HTTP request.

The message defines the HTTP request that is sent to an App Engine app when the task is dispatched.

This proto can only be used for tasks in a queue which has app_engine_http_queue set.

Using AppEngineHttpRequest requires appengine.applications.get Google IAM permission for the project and the following scope:

https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform

The task will be delivered to the App Engine app which belongs to the same project as the queue. For more information, see How Requests are Routed and how routing is affected by dispatch files.

The AppEngineRouting used to construct the URL that the task is delivered to can be set at the queue-level or task-level:

  • If set, app_engine_routing_override is used for all tasks in the queue, no matter what the setting is for the task-level app_engine_routing.

The url that the task will be sent to is:

  • url = host + relative_uri

The task attempt has succeeded if the app's request handler returns an HTTP response code in the range [200 - 299]. 503 is considered an App Engine system error instead of an application error. Requests returning error 503 will be retried regardless of retry configuration and not counted against retry counts. Any other response code or a failure to receive a response before the deadline is a failed attempt.

Properties

Parameter

httpMethod

number

The HTTP method to use for the request. The default is POST.

The app's request handler for the task's target URL must be able to handle HTTP requests with this http_method, otherwise the task attempt will fail with error code 405 (Method Not Allowed). See Writing a push task request handler and the documentation for the request handlers in the language your app is written in e.g. Python Request Handler.

The number should be among the values of HttpMethod

appEngineRouting

Object

Task-level setting for App Engine routing.

If set, app_engine_routing_override is used for all tasks in the queue, no matter what the setting is for the task-level app_engine_routing.

This object should have the same structure as AppEngineRouting

relativeUri

string

The relative URI.

The relative URI must begin with "/" and must be a valid HTTP relative URI. It can contain a path and query string arguments. If the relative URI is empty, then the root path "/" will be used. No spaces are allowed, and the maximum length allowed is 2083 characters.

headers

Object with string properties

HTTP request headers.

This map contains the header field names and values. Headers can be set when the task is created. Repeated headers are not supported but a header value can contain commas.

Cloud Tasks sets some headers to default values:

  • User-Agent: By default, this header is "AppEngine-Google; (+http://code.google.com/appengine)". This header can be modified, but Cloud Tasks will append "AppEngine-Google; (+http://code.google.com/appengine)" to the modified User-Agent.

    If the task has a body, Cloud Tasks sets the following headers:

  • Content-Type: By default, the Content-Type header is set to "application/octet-stream". The default can be overridden by explicitly setting Content-Type to a particular media type when the task is created. For example, Content-Type can be set to "application/json".

  • Content-Length: This is computed by Cloud Tasks. This value is output only. It cannot be changed.

    The headers below cannot be set or overridden:

  • Host

  • X-Google-
  • X-AppEngine-

    In addition, Cloud Tasks sets some headers when the task is dispatched, such as headers containing information about the task; see request headers. These headers are set only when the task is dispatched, so they are not visible when the task is returned in a Cloud Tasks response.

    Although there is no specific limit for the maximum number of headers or the size, there is a limit on the maximum size of the Task. For more information, see the CreateTask documentation.

body

string

HTTP request body.

A request body is allowed only if the HTTP method is POST or PUT. It is an error to set a body on a task with an incompatible HttpMethod.

AppEngineRouting

static

App Engine Routing.

Specifies the target URI. Since this target type dispatches tasks to secure app handlers, unsecure app handlers, and URIs restricted with login: admin the protocol (for example, HTTP or HTTPS) cannot be explictly specified. Task dispatches do not follow redirects and cannot target URI paths restricted with login: required because tasks are not run as any user.

For more information about services, versions, and instances see An Overview of App Engine, Microservices Architecture on Google App Engine, App Engine Standard request routing, and App Engine Flex request routing.

Properties

Parameter

service

string

App service.

By default, the task is sent to the service which is the default service when the task is attempted.

For some queues or tasks which were created using the App Engine Task Queue API, host is not parsable into service, version, and instance. For example, some tasks which were created using the App Engine SDK use a custom domain name; custom domains are not parsed by Cloud Tasks. If host is not parsable, then service, version, and instance are the empty string.

version

string

App version.

By default, the task is sent to the version which is the default version when the task is attempted.

For some queues or tasks which were created using the App Engine Task Queue API, host is not parsable into service, version, and instance. For example, some tasks which were created using the App Engine SDK use a custom domain name; custom domains are not parsed by Cloud Tasks. If host is not parsable, then service, version, and instance are the empty string.

instance

string

App instance.

By default, the task is sent to an instance which is available when the task is attempted.

Requests can only be sent to a specific instance if manual scaling is used in App Engine Standard. App Engine Flex does not support instances. For more information, see App Engine Standard request routing and App Engine Flex request routing.

host

string

Output only. The host that the task is sent to.

The host is constructed from the domain name of the app associated with the queue's project ID (for example .appspot.com), and the service, version, and instance. Tasks which were created using the App Engine SDK might have a custom domain name.

For more information, see How Requests are Routed.

CreateQueueRequest

static

Request message for CreateQueue.

Properties

Parameter

parent

string

Required.

The location name in which the queue will be created. For example: projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION_ID

The list of allowed locations can be obtained by calling Cloud Tasks' implementation of ListLocations.

queue

Object

Required.

The queue to create.

Queue's name cannot be the same as an existing queue.

This object should have the same structure as Queue

See also

google.cloud.tasks.v2beta3.CreateQueueRequest definition in proto format

CreateTaskRequest

static

Request message for CreateTask.

Properties

Parameter

parent

string

Required.

The queue name. For example: projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION_ID/queues/QUEUE_ID

The queue must already exist.

task

Object

Required.

The task to add.

Task names have the following format: projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION_ID/queues/QUEUE_ID/tasks/TASK_ID. The user can optionally specify a task name. If a name is not specified then the system will generate a random unique task id, which will be set in the task returned in the response.

If schedule_time is not set or is in the past then Cloud Tasks will set it to the current time.

Task De-duplication:

Explicitly specifying a task ID enables task de-duplication. If a task's ID is identical to that of an existing task or a task that was deleted or executed recently then the call will fail with ALREADY_EXISTS. If the task's queue was created using Cloud Tasks, then another task with the same name can't be created for ~1hour after the original task was deleted or executed. If the task's queue was created using queue.yaml or queue.xml, then another task with the same name can't be created for ~9days after the original task was deleted or executed.

Because there is an extra lookup cost to identify duplicate task names, these CreateTask calls have significantly increased latency. Using hashed strings for the task id or for the prefix of the task id is recommended. Choosing task ids that are sequential or have sequential prefixes, for example using a timestamp, causes an increase in latency and error rates in all task commands. The infrastructure relies on an approximately uniform distribution of task ids to store and serve tasks efficiently.

This object should have the same structure as Task

responseView

number

The response_view specifies which subset of the Task will be returned.

By default response_view is BASIC; not all information is retrieved by default because some data, such as payloads, might be desirable to return only when needed because of its large size or because of the sensitivity of data that it contains.

Authorization for FULL requires cloudtasks.tasks.fullView Google IAM permission on the Task resource.

filter

string

filter can be used to specify a subset of queues. Any Queue field can be used as a filter and several operators as supported. For example: <=, <, >=, >, !=, =, :. The filter syntax is the same as described in Stackdriver's Advanced Logs Filters.

Sample filter "state: PAUSED".

Note that using filters might cause fewer queues than the requested page_size to be returned.

Properties

Parameter

name

string

  • QUEUE_ID can contain letters ([A-Za-z]), numbers ([0-9]), or hyphens (-). The maximum length is 100 characters.

appEngineHttpQueue

Object

App Engine HTTP queue.

An App Engine queue is a queue that has an AppEngineHttpQeueue type.

This object should have the same structure as AppEngineHttpQueue

rateLimits

Object

Rate limits for task dispatches.

rate_limits and retry_config are related because they both control task attempts however they control how tasks are attempted in different ways:

  • rate_limits controls the total rate of dispatches from a queue (i.e. all traffic dispatched from the queue, regardless of whether the dispatch is from a first attempt or a retry).
  • retry_config controls what happens to particular a task after its first attempt fails. That is, retry_config controls task retries (the second attempt, third attempt, etc).

    This object should have the same structure as RateLimits

retryConfig

Object

Settings that determine the retry behavior.

  • For tasks created using Cloud Tasks: the queue-level retry settings apply to all tasks in the queue that were created using Cloud Tasks. Retry settings cannot be set on individual tasks.
  • For tasks created using the App Engine SDK: the queue-level retry settings apply to all tasks in the queue which do not have retry settings explicitly set on the task and were created by the App Engine SDK. See App Engine documentation.

    This object should have the same structure as RetryConfig

state

number

Output only. The state of the queue.

state can only be changed by called PauseQueue, ResumeQueue, or uploading queue.yaml/xml. UpdateQueue cannot be used to change state.

The number should be among the values of State

purgeTime

Object

Output only. The last time this queue was purged.

All tasks that were created before this time were purged.

A queue can be purged using PurgeQueue, the App Engine Task Queue SDK, or the Cloud Console.

Purge time will be truncated to the nearest microsecond. Purge time will be unset if the queue has never been purged.

This object should have the same structure as Timestamp

See also

google.cloud.tasks.v2beta3.Queue definition in proto format

RateLimits

static

Rate limits.

This message determines the maximum rate that tasks can be dispatched by a queue, regardless of whether the dispatch is a first task attempt or a retry.

Note: The debugging command, RunTask, will run a task even if the queue has reached its RateLimits.

Properties

Parameter

maxDispatchesPerSecond

number

The maximum rate at which tasks are dispatched from this queue.

If unspecified when the queue is created, Cloud Tasks will pick the default.

  • For App Engine queues, the maximum allowed value is 500.

This field has the same meaning as rate in queue.yaml/xml.

maxBurstSize

number

Output only. The max burst size.

Max burst size limits how fast tasks in queue are processed when many tasks are in the queue and the rate is high. This field allows the queue to have a high rate so processing starts shortly after a task is enqueued, but still limits resource usage when many tasks are enqueued in a short period of time.

The token bucket algorithm is used to control the rate of task dispatches. Each queue has a token bucket that holds tokens, up to the maximum specified by max_burst_size. Each time a task is dispatched, a token is removed from the bucket. Tasks will be dispatched until the queue's bucket runs out of tokens. The bucket will be continuously refilled with new tokens based on max_dispatches_per_second.

Cloud Tasks will pick the value of max_burst_size based on the value of max_dispatches_per_second.

For App Engine queues that were created or updated using queue.yaml/xml, max_burst_size is equal to bucket_size. Since max_burst_size is output only, if UpdateQueue is called on a queue created by queue.yaml/xml, max_burst_size will be reset based on the value of max_dispatches_per_second, regardless of whether max_dispatches_per_second is updated.

maxConcurrentDispatches

number

The maximum number of concurrent tasks that Cloud Tasks allows to be dispatched for this queue. After this threshold has been reached, Cloud Tasks stops dispatching tasks until the number of concurrent requests decreases.

If unspecified when the queue is created, Cloud Tasks will pick the default.

The maximum allowed value is 5,000.

This field has the same meaning as max_concurrent_requests in queue.yaml/xml.

See also

google.cloud.tasks.v2beta3.RateLimits definition in proto format

ResumeQueueRequest

static

Request message for ResumeQueue.

Property

Parameter

name

string

Required.

The queue name. For example: projects/PROJECT_ID/location/LOCATION_ID/queues/QUEUE_ID

See also

google.cloud.tasks.v2beta3.ResumeQueueRequest definition in proto format

RetryConfig

static

Retry config.

These settings determine when a failed task attempt is retried.

Properties

Parameter

maxAttempts

number

Number of attempts per task.

Cloud Tasks will attempt the task max_attempts times (that is, if the first attempt fails, then there will be max_attempts - 1 retries). Must be >= -1.

If unspecified when the queue is created, Cloud Tasks will pick the default.

-1 indicates unlimited attempts.

This field has the same meaning as task_retry_limit in queue.yaml/xml.

maxRetryDuration

Object

If positive, max_retry_duration specifies the time limit for retrying a failed task, measured from when the task was first attempted. Once max_retry_duration time has passed and the task has been attempted max_attempts times, no further attempts will be made and the task will be deleted.

If zero, then the task age is unlimited.

If unspecified when the queue is created, Cloud Tasks will pick the default.

max_retry_duration will be truncated to the nearest second.

This field has the same meaning as task_age_limit in queue.yaml/xml.

This object should have the same structure as Duration

minBackoff

Object

A task will be scheduled for retry between min_backoff and max_backoff duration after it fails, if the queue's RetryConfig specifies that the task should be retried.

If unspecified when the queue is created, Cloud Tasks will pick the default.

min_backoff will be truncated to the nearest second.

This field has the same meaning as min_backoff_seconds in queue.yaml/xml.

This object should have the same structure as Duration

maxBackoff

Object

A task will be scheduled for retry between min_backoff and max_backoff duration after it fails, if the queue's RetryConfig specifies that the task should be retried.

If unspecified when the queue is created, Cloud Tasks will pick the default.

max_backoff will be truncated to the nearest second.

This field has the same meaning as max_backoff_seconds in queue.yaml/xml.

This object should have the same structure as Duration

maxDoublings

number

The time between retries will double max_doublings times.

A task's retry interval starts at min_backoff, then doubles max_doublings times, then increases linearly, and finally retries retries at intervals of max_backoff up to max_attempts times.

For example, if min_backoff is 10s, max_backoff is 300s, and max_doublings is 3, then the a task will first be retried in 10s. The retry interval will double three times, and then increase linearly by 2^3 * 10s. Finally, the task will retry at intervals of max_backoff until the task has been attempted max_attempts times. Thus, the requests will retry at 10s, 20s, 40s, 80s, 160s, 240s, 300s, 300s, ....

If unspecified when the queue is created, Cloud Tasks will pick the default.

This field has the same meaning as max_doublings in queue.yaml/xml.
