Code sample

Node.js

To learn how to install and use the client library for Cloud Tasks, see Cloud Tasks client libraries.

// Imports the Google Cloud Tasks library.
const {CloudTasksClient} = require('@google-cloud/tasks');

// Instantiates a client.
const client = new CloudTasksClient();

async function quickstart() {
  // TODO(developer): Uncomment these lines and replace with your values.
  // const project = 'my-project-id';
  // const queue = 'my-appengine-queue';
  // const location = 'us-central1';
  // const payload = 'hello';

  // Construct the fully qualified queue name.
  const parent = client.queuePath(project, location, queue);

  const task = {
    appEngineHttpRequest: {
      httpMethod: 'POST',
      relativeUri: '/log_payload',
    },
  };

  if (payload) {
    task.appEngineHttpRequest.body = Buffer.from(payload).toString('base64');
  }

  if (inSeconds) {
    task.scheduleTime = {
      seconds: inSeconds + Date.now() / 1000,
    };
  }

  const request = {
    parent: parent,
    task: task,
  };

  console.log('Sending task:');
  console.log(task);
  // Send create task request.
  const [response] = await client.createTask(request);
  const name = response.name;
  console.log(`Created task ${name}`);
}
quickstart();
