Pub/Sub notifications for job updates

This page explains how to configure a Pub/Sub topic that you can use to receive job status updates from the Transcoder API.

To receive job status updates:

  1. If you don't have an existing Pub/Sub topic, create a topic. To learn how to create a Pub/Sub topic, see Managing topics and subscriptions.

  2. Make sure to configure the pubsub_destination field in the job configuration.

  3. Create a job to enable the Google-managed Transcoder service account.

  4. Find the service-PROJECT_NUMBER@gcp-sa-transcoder.iam.gserviceaccount.com service account in the Cloud Console, where PROJECT_NUMBER is the project number of the project you enabled the Transcoder API in and you plan to create the feed from.

    1. In the Cloud Console, go to the IAM page.

      Go to IAM

    2. Select the Include Google-provided role grants checkbox.

  5. Make sure the service account has the pubsub.topics.publish permission enabled.
