tGSBucketDelete properties

Component Family

Big Data / Google Cloud Storage


Basic settings

Use an existing connection

Select this check box and in the Component List click the relevant connection component to reuse the connection details you already defined.


Access Key and Secret Key

Type in the authentication information obtained from Google for making requests to Google Cloud Storage.

These keys can be consulted on the Interoperable Access tab view under the Google Cloud Storage tab of the project from the Google APIs Console.

To enter the secret key, click the [...] button next to the secret key field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

For more information about the access key and secret key, go to and see the description about developer keys.


The Access Key and Secret Key fields will be available only if you do not select the Use an existing connection check box.


Bucket name

Specify the name of the bucket that you want to delete. Make sure that the bucket to be deleted is empty.


Bucket deletion cannot be undone, so you need to back up any data that you want to keep before the deletion.


Die on error

This check box is cleared by default, meaning to skip the row on error and to complete the process for error-free rows.

Advanced settings

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at the Job level as well as at each component level.

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl + Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.


This component can be used together with the tGSBucketList component to check if the specified bucket is deleted successfully.
