Google Cloud Functions

Learn how to integrate Google Cloud Functions with Apono

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.


Before starting this integration, create the items listed in the following table.
