Introducing: Google Cloud CLI

Buddy tightly integrates with the Google ecosystem with regular updates to Big G's action roster, allowing you to upload, run and manage code and applications in your Google cloud.

With Cloud Storage, Compute Engine, App Engine and container services already covered, the most popular request that remained was running custom requests with gcloud CLI. Today, we deliver it in form of a dedicated action.

Please mind you need to generate a service account key to grant Buddy access to your cloud. You can do that directly in the action.

Use Case

Let's say you're a Google developer and your workflow looks like this:

  1. Build application
  2. Backup database with gcloud
  3. Deploy application to Google Compute Engine
  4. Upload assets to Google Cloud Storage
  5. Invalidate Google CDN cache

With Buddy you can automate all these tasks by creating a pipeline with corresponding actions:

Such pipeline can be run automatically on every push to the selected branch, manually on click or recurrently on a time interval – whatever suits you best.
