Google Cloud Storage Watcher

Automation Workshop module the Google Cloud Storage Watcher allows monitoring Google Cloud Platform Storage (GCP Storage) for diverse file and directory related events.

Google Cloud Storage Watcher enables you to create automated workflows that can monitor new file creations, file modifications, as well as removals on the GCP. Fine-tune file monitoring using file wildcards by filtering out *.pdf, *.docx, or *.jpg files. Also, monitor a directory for a certain file size or launch a workflow when a directory reaches a certain file count.

Automation Workshop is a no-code solution that enables you to automate files on a cloud and local machines. It is a self-hosted solution that works on any Windows version and features more than 100 Actions, including flows to upload, download, and sync files, to archive, unarchive, or email files, and a lot more.
