Pull messages from GCP PubSub and POST to an HTTP endpoint.


Under development. Works in basic testing.


If you are using GCP PubSub and wish to use push but cannot, then this may help.

Reasons you may need to do this:

  • You may have an application that you are unable to use PubSub push authentication.
  • You cannot expose your application so that PubSub can directly access it - ie, you are on a private network.

You may also have a code base that you are unable or unwilling to add PubSub functionality. pubsub-push-proxy may allow your application to handle pubsub messages by handling a normal HTTP POST.


pubsub-push-proxy uses Google default application credentials. This generally means you need to create a service account and key.

Clone this repository and build the binary. Tested with Go 1.12.x:

mkdir -p $HOME/src
cd $HOME/src
git clone
cd pubsub-push-proxy
go build .

You should now have a pubsub-push-proxy binary.

./pubsub-push-proxy --help

pubsub-push-proxy: main --project=PROJECT --endpoint=ENDPOINT --subscription=SUBSCRIPTION [<flags>]

  -h, --help                   Show context-sensitive help (also try --help-long and --help-man).
  -p, --project=PROJECT        GCP project
  -l, --log-level=LOGLEVEL     log level: valid options are debug, info, warn, and error
  -e, --endpoint=ENDPOINT      URL to POST pubsub message
  -m, --max-extension=5m       maximum period for which the Subscription should automatically extend the ack deadline for each message
  -o, --max-outstanding-messages=8
                               maximum number of unprocessed messages (unacknowledged but not yet expired)
  -s, --subscription=SUBSCRIPTION
                               name of the PubSub subscription
  -r, --retries=10             number of times to retry an HTTP POST
  -a, --addr=""  listen address for metrics handler

pubsub-push-proxy will pull messages from the PubSub subscription and perform HTTP POSTs to the given endpoint. The body of the post request is JSON described here

Only HTTP status code 200 is considered successful.
