API for Google services does not have a standardized way to report quota violation errors.

The function has been adapted by trial and error to the following services:

  • Google Translate

  • Google Vision

  • Google Text-to-Speech

  • Google Speech-to-Text

  • Google Natural Language

  • Google Video Intelligence

class airflow.contrib.hooks.gcp_api_base_hook.retry_if_temporary_quota[source]

Bases: tenacity.retry_if_exception

Retries if there was an exception for exceeding the temporary quote limit.

class airflow.contrib.hooks.gcp_api_base_hook.GoogleCloudBaseHook(gcp_conn_id='google_cloud_default', delegate_to=None)[source]

Bases: airflow.hooks.base_hook.BaseHook

A base hook for Google cloud-related hooks. Google cloud has a shared REST API client that is built in the same way no matter which service you use. This class helps construct and authorize the credentials needed to then call to actually discover and build a client for a Google cloud service.

The class also contains some miscellaneous helper functions.

All hook derived from this base hook use the ‘Google Cloud Platform’ connection type. Three ways of authentication are supported:

Default credentials: Only the ‘Project Id’ is required. You’ll need to have set up default credentials, such as by the GOOGLE_APPLICATION_DEFAULT environment variable or from the metadata server on Google Compute Engine.

JSON key file: Specify ‘Project Id’, ‘Keyfile Path’ and ‘Scope’.

Legacy P12 key files are not supported.

JSON data provided in the UI: Specify ‘Keyfile JSON’.

  • gcp_conn_id (str) – The connection ID to use when fetching connection info.

  • 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.

class _Decorators[source]

Bases: object

A private inner class for keeping all decorator methods.

static provide_gcp_credential_file(func)[source]

Function decorator that provides a GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS environment variable, pointing to file path of a JSON file of service account key.


Returns num_retries from Connection.


the number of times each API request should be retried

Return type



Returns the Credentials object for Google API


Returns a valid access token from Google API Credentials


Returns an authorized HTTP object to be used to build a Google cloud service hook connection.

_get_field(self, f, default=None)[source]

Fetches a field from extras, and returns it. This is some Airflow magic. The google_cloud_platform hook type adds custom UI elements to the hook page, which allow admins to specify service_account, key_path, etc. They get formatted as shown below.

static quota_retry(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Function decorator that provides a mechanism to repeat requests in response to exceeding a temporary quote limit.

static catch_http_exception(func)[source]

Function decorator that intercepts HTTP Errors and raises AirflowException with more informative message.

static fallback_to_default_project_id(func)[source]

Decorator that provides fallback for Google Cloud Platform project id. If the project is None it will be replaced with the project_id from the service account the Hook is authenticated with. Project id can be specified either via project_id kwarg or via first parameter in positional args.


func – function to wrap


result of the function call

_get_project_id(self, project_id)[source]

In case project_id is None, overrides it with default project_id from the service account that is authorized.


project_id (str) – project id to


the project_id specified or default project id if project_id is None
