This page explains how to create a Cloud Data Fusion instance.

Before you begin

Create an instance


If the API is enabled, the Cloud Data Fusion section in the Google Cloud console shows an Instances page, where you can create and manage your Cloud Data Fusion instances.

  1. In the console, go to the Cloud Data Fusion page.
  2. Click Instances, and then click Create an instance.

  3. Enter an Instance name.
  4. Enter a Description for your instance.
  5. Specify the Region in which to create the instance.
  6. Specify the Cloud Data Fusion Version.
  7. Select an Edition. The default is Basic.
  8. Optional: Click Add accelerators to select accelerators to use in your instance.
  9. Specify the Dataproc service account to use for running your Cloud Data Fusion pipeline in Dataproc. The default is the Compute Engine account. Regardless of version, make sure that a service account has appropriate Identity and Access Management roles for your needs. For more information, see Granting service account user permission.
  10. Optional: Specify any advanced options. If you don't specify anything, the following defaults are used:

    Category Setting Description Default

    Encryption Use a customer-managed encryption key (CMEK) Use role-based access control in versions 6.5 and later. Disabled
    Labels A key-value pair The resource labels for the instance to use to annotate any related underlying resources, such as Compute Engine VMs. Label keys and label values can only contain letters, numbers, dashes, and underscores. Label keys must start with a letter or number. None
  11. Click Create. It takes up to 30 minutes for the instance creation process to complete.

While Cloud Data Fusion creates your instance, a progress wheel displays next to the instance name on the Instances page. After completion, it turns into a green check mark and indicates that you can start using the instance.
