Google Cloud Functions

Google Cloud Functions enables you to build and connect cloud services by writing single-purpose functions that are attached to events emitted from your cloud infrastructure and services.

Its serverless architecture frees you to write, test, and deploy functions quickly without having to manage infrastructure setup.

With this integration, you can connect your internal applications to Cloud Functions and manage access to those applications with Apono.


Apono currently supports the original version of Google Cloud Functions, 1st Gen.


Apono ConnectorOn-prem connection serving as a bridge between your Google Function and Apono, deployed with a GCP service account

Minimum Required Version: 1.5.3

Use the following steps if you need to update an existing connector.

To allow the Apono connector to call the Cloud Function, add the Cloud Functions Invoke and Cloud Functions Viewer roles to the apono-connector service account apono-connector-iam-sa for that Cloud Function.

Integrate a Google Cloud Function

Follow these steps to complete the integration:

  1. On the Catalog tab, click Cloud Function Custom Integration. The Connect Integration page appears.
  2. Under Discovery, click Next. The Apono connector section expands.
  3. From the dropdown menu, select a connector.


    If the desired connector is not listed, click + Add new connector and follow the instructions for creating a GCP connector.

  4. Click Next. The Integration Config section expands.
  5. Define the Integration Config settings.
    Setting Description
    Integration Name Unique, alphanumeric, user-friendly name used to identify this integration when constructing an access flow
    Access Details Instructions for accessing this integrations's resources
    Custom Parameters Key-value pairs to send to the Google Cloud Function

    For example, you can provide a Google Function with a redirect URL that is used for internal provisioning access and passed as part of the action requests.
    Project ID ID of the project associated with the Cloud Function
    Region Location of the Google Cloud Function instance
    Function Name Name of the Google Cloud Function

  1. Click Next. The Get more with Apono section expands.
  2. Define the Get more with Apono settings.
    Setting Description
    Custom Access Details (Optional) Instructions explaining how to access this integration's resources
    Integration Owner (Optional) Fallback approver if no resource owner is found

    Follow these steps to define one or several integration owners:
    1. From the Attribute dropdown menu, select User or Group under the relevant identity provider (IdP) platform.
    2. From the Value dropdown menu, select one or multiple users or groups.

    NOTE: When Resource Owner is defined, an Integration Owner must be defined.
    Resource Owner (Optional) Group or role responsible for managing access approvals or rejections for the resource

    Follow these steps to define one or several resource owners:
    1. Enter a Key name. This value is the name of the tag created in your cloud environment.

    2. From the Attribute dropdown menu, select an attribute under the IdP platform to which the key name is associated.

      Apono will use the value associated with the key (tag) to identify the resource owner. When you update the membership of the group or role in your IdP platform, this change is also reflected in Apono.

    NOTE: When this setting is defined, an Integration Owner must also be defined.

  1. Click Confirm.

Now that you have completed this integration, you can create access flows that grant permission to your internal application.
