Event-driven transfers

Storage Transfer Service can listen to event notifications in AWS or Google Cloud to automatically transfer data that has been added or updated in the source location. Event-driven transfers are supported from AWS S3 or Cloud Storage to Cloud Storage.

Event-driven transfers listen to Amazon S3 Event Notifications sent to Amazon SQS for AWS S3 sources. Cloud Storage sources send notifications to a Pub/Sub subscription.

Benefits of event-driven transfers

Because event-driven transfers listen for changes to the source bucket, updates are copied to the destination in near-real time. Storage Transfer Service doesn't need to execute a list operation against the source, saving time and money.

Use cases include:

  • Event-driven analytics: Replicate data from AWS to Cloud Storage to perform analytics and processing.

  • Cloud Storage replication: Enable automatic, asynchronous object replication between Cloud Storage buckets.

    Event-driven transfers with Storage Transfer Service differ from typical Cloud Storage replication by creating a copy of your data in a different bucket.

    This provides benefits such as:

    • Keeping development and production data in separate namespaces.
    • Sharing data without providing access to the original bucket.
    • Backing up to a different continent, or to an area not covered by dual-region and multi-region storage.
  • DR/HA setup: Replicate objects from source to backup destination in order of minutes:

    • Cross-cloud backup: Create a copy of AWS S3 backup on Cloud Storage.
    • Cross-region or cross-project backup: Create a copy of Cloud Storage bucket in a different region or project.
  • Live migration: Event-driven transfer can power low-downtime migration, on the order of minutes of downtime, as a follow up step to one-time batch migration.

Set up event-driven transfers from Cloud Storage

Configure permissions

  1. Find the name of the Storage Transfer Service service agent for your project:

    1. Go to the googleServiceAccounts.get reference page.

      An interactive panel opens, titled Try this method.

    2. In the panel, under Request parameters, enter your project ID. The project you specify here must be the project you're using to manage Storage Transfer Service, which might be different from the source bucket's project.

    3. Click Execute.

    Your service agent's email is returned as the value of accountEmail. Copy this value.

    The service agent's email uses the format project-PROJECT_NUMBER@storage-transfer-service.iam.gserviceaccount.com.

  2. Grant the Pub/Sub Subscriber role to the Storage Transfer Service service agent.

    Cloud console

    Follow the instructions in Controlling access through the Google Cloud console to grant the Pub/Sub Subscriber role to the Storage Transfer Service service. The role can be granted at the topic, subscription, or project level.

    gcloud CLI

    Follow the instructions in Setting a policy to add the following binding:

    {
      "role": "roles/pubsub.subscriber",
      "members": [
        "serviceAccount:project-PROJECT_NUMBER@storage-transfer-service.iam.gserviceaccount.com"
    }
    

Configure Pub/Sub

  1. Make sure that you've satisfied the Prerequisites for using Pub/Sub with Cloud Storage.

  2. Configure Pub/Sub notification for Cloud Storage:

    gcloud storage buckets notifications create gs://BUCKET_NAME --topic=TOPIC_NAME
    
  3. Create a pull subscription for the topic:

    gcloud pubsub subscriptions create SUBSCRIPTION_ID --topic=TOPIC_NAME --ack-deadline=300
    

Create a transfer job

You can use the REST API or the Cloud console to create an event-based transfer job.

Don't include sensitive information such as personally identifiable information (PII) or security data in your transfer job name. Resource names may be propagated to the names of other Google Cloud resources and may be exposed to Google-internal systems outside of your project.

Cloud console

  1. Go to the Create transfer job page in the Google Cloud console.

    Go to Create transfer job

  2. Select Cloud Storage as both the source and the destination.

  3. As the Scheduling mode select Event-driven and click Next step.

  4. Select the source bucket for this transfer.

  5. In the Event stream section, enter the subscription name:

    projects/PROJECT_NAME/subscriptions/SUBSCRIPTION_ID

  6. Optionally, define any filters, then click Next step.

  7. Select the destination bucket for this transfer.

  8. Optionally, enter a start and end time for the transfer. If you don't specify a time, the transfer will start immediately and will run until manually stopped.

  9. Specify any transfer options. More information is available from the Create transfers page. Event-driven transfers cannot be configured to delete files from the source.

  10. Click Create.

Once created, the transfer job starts running and an event listener waits for notifications on the Pub/Sub subscription. The job details page shows one operation each hour, and includes details on data transferred for each job.

REST

To create an event-driven transfer using the REST API, send the following JSON object to the transferJobs.create endpoint:

transfer_job {
  "description": "YOUR DESCRIPTION",
  "status": "ENABLED",
  "projectId": "PROJECT_ID",
  "transferSpec" {
    "gcsDataSource" {
      "bucketName": "GCS_SOURCE_NAME"
    },
    "gcsDataSink": {
        "bucketName": "GCS_SINK_NAME"
    }
  }
  "eventStream" {
    "name": "projects/PROJECT_NAME/subscriptions/SUBSCRIPTION_ID",
    "eventStreamStartTime": "2022-12-02T01:00:00+00:00",
    "eventStreamExpirationTime": "2023-01-31T01:00:00+00:00"
  }
}

The eventStreamStartTime and eventStreamExpirationTime are optional. If the start time is omitted, the transfer starts immediately; if the end time is omitted, the transfer continues until manually stopped.

Set up event-driven transfers from AWS S3

Create an SQS queue

Event-driven transfers from AWS S3 use notifications from Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) to know when objects in the source bucket have been modified or added.

  1. In the AWS console, go to the Simple Queue Service page.

  2. Click Create queue.

  3. Enter a Name for this queue.

  4. In the Access policy section, select Advanced. A JSON object is displayed:

     {
        "Version": "2008-10-17",
        "Id": "__default_policy_ID",
        "Statement": [
          {
            "Sid": "__owner_statement",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Principal": {
              "AWS": "01234567890"
            },
            "Action": [
              "SQS:*"
            ],
            "Resource": "arn:aws:sqs:us-west-2:01234567890:test"
          }
        ]
      }
      

    The values of AWS and Resource are unique for each project.

  5. Copy your specific values of AWS and Resource from the displayed JSON into the following JSON snippet:

    {
      "Version": "2012-10-17",
      "Id": "example-ID",
      "Statement": [
        {
          "Sid": "example-statement-ID",
          "Effect": "Allow",
          "Principal": {
            "Service": "s3.amazonaws.com"
          },
          "Action": "SQS:SendMessage",
          "Resource": "RESOURCE",
          "Condition": {
            "StringEquals": {
              "aws:SourceAccount": "AWS"
            },
            "ArnLike": {
              "aws:SourceArn": "S3_BUCKET_ARN"
            }
          }
        }
      ]
    }
    

    The values of the placeholders in the preceding JSON use the following format:

    • AWS is a numeric value representing your Amazon Web Services project. For example, "aws:SourceAccount": "1234567890".
    • RESOURCE is an Amazon Resource Number (ARN) that identifies this queue. For example, "Resource": "arn:aws:sqs:us-west-2:01234567890:test".
    • S3_BUCKET_ARN is an ARN that identifies the source bucket. For example, "aws:SourceArn": "arn:aws:s3:::example-aws-bucket". You can find a bucket's ARN from the Properties tab of the bucket details page in the AWS console.
  6. Replace the JSON displayed in the Access policy section with the updated JSON above.

  7. Click Create queue.

Once complete, note the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the queue. The ARN has the following format:

arn:aws:sqs:us-east-1:1234567890:event-queue"

Enable notifications on your S3 bucket

  1. In the AWS console, go to the S3 page.

  2. In the Buckets list, select your source bucket.

  3. Select the Properties tab.

  4. In the Event notifications section, click Create event notification.

  5. Specify a name for this event.

  6. In the Event types section, select All object create events.

  7. As the Destination select SQS queue and select the queue you created for this transfer.

  8. Click Save changes.

Configure permissions

Follow the instructions in Configure access to a source: Amazon S3 to create either an access key ID and secret key, or a Federated Identity role.

Replace the custom permissions JSON with the following:

{
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
                "sqs:DeleteMessage",
                "sqs:ChangeMessageVisibility",
                "sqs:ReceiveMessage",
                "s3:GetObject",
                "s3:ListBucket"
            ],
            "Resource": [
                "arn:aws:s3:::AWS_BUCKET_NAME",
                "arn:aws:s3:::AWS_BUCKET_NAME/*",
                "AWS_QUEUE_ARN"
            ]
        }
    ]
}

Once created, note the following information:

  • For a user, note the access key ID and secret key.
  • For a Federated Identity role, note the Amazon Resource Name (ARN), which has the format arn:aws:iam::AWS_ACCOUNT:role/ROLE_NAME.

Create a transfer job

You can use the REST API or the Cloud console to create an event-based transfer job.

Cloud console

  1. Go to the Create transfer job page in the Google Cloud console.

    Go to Create transfer job

  2. Select Amazon S3 as the source type, and Cloud Storage as the destination.

  3. As the Scheduling mode select Event-driven and click Next step.

  4. Enter your S3 bucket name. The bucket name is the name as it appears in the AWS Management Console. For example, my-aws-bucket.

  5. Select your authentication method and enter the requested information, which you created and noted in the previous section.

  6. Enter the Amazon SQS queue ARN that you created earlier. It uses the following format:

    arn:aws:sqs:us-east-1:1234567890:event-queue"
    
  7. Optionally, define any filters, then click Next step.

  8. Select the destination Cloud Storage bucket and, optionally, path.

  9. Optionally, enter a start and end time for the transfer. If you don't specify a time, the transfer will start immediately and will run until manually stopped.

  10. Specify any transfer options. More information is available from the Create transfers page. Event-driven transfers cannot be configured to delete files from the source.

  11. Click Create.

Once created, the transfer job starts running and an event listener waits for notifications on the SQS queue. The job details page shows one operation each hour, and includes details on data transferred for each job.

REST

To create an event-driven transfer using the REST API, send the following JSON object to the transferJobs.create endpoint:

transfer_job {
  "description": "YOUR DESCRIPTION",
  "status": "ENABLED",
  "projectId": "PROJECT_ID",
  "transferSpec" {
    "awsS3DataSource" {
      "bucketName": "AWS_SOURCE_NAME",
      "roleArn": "arn:aws:iam::1234567891011:role/role_for_federated_auth"
    },
    "gcsDataSink": {
        "bucketName": "GCS_SINK_NAME"
    }
  }
  "eventStream" {
    "name": "arn:aws:sqs:us-east-1:1234567891011:s3-notification-queue",
    "eventStreamStartTime": "2022-12-02T01:00:00+00:00",
    "eventStreamExpirationTime": "2023-01-31T01:00:00+00:00"
  }
}

The eventStreamStartTime and eventStreamExpirationTime are optional. If the start time is omitted, the transfer starts immediately; if the end time is omitted, the transfer continues until manually stopped.
