Start the data flow

When your flow is ready, you can begin ingesting data into Google Cloud Storage buckets. Learn how to start your GCS ingest data flow.

  1. To initiate your data flow, select all the data flow components you want to start.
  2. Click the Start icon in the Actions toolbar.
    Alternatively, right-click a single component and choose Start from the context menu. Data should be read from Kafka and it should be written to the defined folder of your GCS bucket.
It is useful to check that data is running through the flow you have created.
