Google has recently announced that Google Cloud Workflows, the service to orchestrate Google Cloud and HTTP-based API services with serverless workflows, is now generally available. Workflows Connectors are also now in public preview.
Google Cloud Workflows requires no infrastructure management. The platform also scales on demand, including scaling down to zero if no requests are processed. This product can be used to develop complex serverless applications, building on workflows that connect a series of serverless tasks together in a predetermined order, and work with other managed services like Google Cloud's APIs, Cloud Functions or Cloud Run.
Among the features of the new service are: error handling with configurable retry policies; a reliable workflow execution targeted to enterprise and line-of-business applications; and the ability to pass information between steps using JSON parsing and expression-based variable manipulations. Workflows publishes connectors to make it easier to access other Google Cloud APIs within a workflow.
Mete Atamel, senior developer advocate at Google, explains why he thinks the new service can help developers:
Connecting services is one of those things that "should be easy" but in reality, it takes a lot of time and effort. You need to figure out a common connection format for services to use, make the connection, parse the results, and pass the results on. I am not even mentioning error handling, retries and all those production readiness type features that you ultimately need to do.
