OpsRamp consumes GCP events through Pub/Sub. Pub/Sub is an asynchronous messaging service from GCP that decouples services that produce events and process events. You can use Pub/Sub as messaging-oriented middleware or event ingestion and delivery for streaming analytics pipelines. OpsRamp supports the instant discovery of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) events, as and when the events are created. Unlike scheduled discovery, where you need to schedule discovery of create/update/delete events from GCP, the event-based discovery helps you discover resources in real-time.

This document outlines the configurations required in GCP and OpsRamp to discover and stream the events.


  • Create a project.
  • Enable cloud Pub/Sub API for the project.


Events are the occurrences that happen in your cloud environment and requires your action.
