Get Started with Data Fusion
Still Struggling to get your data at one place? Data fusion makes it much easier. Data fusion provides GUI to visually drag and drop things, making the lives of data practitioners much easier. They can now use it in GCP.
Building Codeless Pipelines on Cloud Data Fusion is an introductory level quest on Qwiklabs which will help you in understanding the very basics of Cloud Data Fusion. Let’s take a dive into the first lab Getting Started with Cloud Data Fusion.
First, make sure you sign in to your Qwiklabs account using an incognito window. When you are ready click on the start lab button. Read through the instructions to make sure you have everything in place before you go for the first step.
Enable cloud data fusion API
Go to the navigation menu, select API and services and type fusion then search after selecting the library. Thereafter select cloud data fusion API and click on enable. Now select data fusion from the navigation menu and select data fusion then create the instance with the details provided in the instructions.
Here’s a secret tip: Don’t copy and paste the instance name from lab instructions, rather type the same as it will save your time in the instance creation. It’s time to test your patience now after clicking on the create button as it may take around 20 mins.
After the instance has been created, create on the name of instance and copy service account. Go to IAM & Admin, select IAM and click on add and create the fusion with the details provided. Click on save. Make sure to click on check my progress.
