Bases: airflow.models.BaseOperator

Copies objects from a bucket to another, with renaming if requested.

  • source_bucket (str) – The source Google cloud storage bucket where the object is. (templated)

  • source_object (str) – The source name of the object to copy in the Google cloud storage bucket. (templated) You can use only one wildcard for objects (filenames) within your bucket. The wildcard can appear inside the object name or at the end of the object name. Appending a wildcard to the bucket name is unsupported.

  • destination_bucket (str) – The destination Google cloud storage bucket where the object should be. If the destination_bucket is None, it defaults to source_bucket. (templated)

  • destination_object (str) – The destination name of the object in the destination Google cloud storage bucket. (templated) If a wildcard is supplied in the source_object argument, this is the prefix that will be prepended to the final destination objects’ paths. Note that the source path’s part before the wildcard will be removed; if it needs to be retained it should be appended to destination_object. For example, with prefix foo/* and destination_object blah/, the file foo/baz will be copied to blah/baz; to retain the prefix write the destination_object as e.g. blah/foo, in which case the copied file will be named blah/foo/baz.

  • move_object (bool) – When move object is True, the object is moved instead of copied to the new location. This is the equivalent of a mv command as opposed to a cp command.

  • google_cloud_storage_conn_id (str) – The connection ID to use when connecting to Google cloud storage.

  • delegate_to (str) – The account to impersonate, if any. For this to work, the service account making the request must have domain-wide delegation enabled.

  • last_modified_time (datetime.datetime) – When specified, the objects will be copied or moved, only if they were modified after last_modified_time. If tzinfo has not been set, UTC will be assumed.


The following Operator would copy a single file named sales/sales-2017/january.avro in the data bucket to the file named copied_sales/2017/january-backup.avro in the data_backup bucket

copy_single_file = GoogleCloudStorageToGoogleCloudStorageOperator(

The following Operator would copy all the Avro files from sales/sales-2017 folder (i.e. with names starting with that prefix) in data bucket to the copied_sales/2017 folder in the data_backup bucket.

copy_files = GoogleCloudStorageToGoogleCloudStorageOperator(

The following Operator would move all the Avro files from sales/sales-2017 folder (i.e. with names starting with that prefix) in data bucket to the same folder in the data_backup bucket, deleting the original files in the process.

move_files = GoogleCloudStorageToGoogleCloudStorageOperator(
template_fields = ['source_bucket', 'source_object', 'destination_bucket', 'destination_object'][source]
ui_color = #f0eee4[source]
execute(self, context)[source]
_copy_single_object(self, hook, source_object, destination_object)[source]
