import (

type PubSubMessage struct {
	Data []byte `json:"data"`

func WebhookPubSub(ctx context.Context, m PubSubMessage) {

	// Send the webhook request with the Pub/Sub message as the content
	webhookURL := "[WEBHOOK_URL]"

	client := resty.New()
	resp, err := client.R().
		SetHeader("Content-Type", "application/json").
	if err != nil {
		log.Printf("Error creating webhook request: %v", err)

	// Check the webhook response
	if resp.StatusCode() != http.StatusAccepted {
		log.Printf("Webhook request failed with status code: %d", resp.StatusCode())
  1. Deploy the Google Cloud Function by running the following command in the terminal: gcloud functions deploy WebhookPubSub --runtime go116 --trigger-topic YOUR_PUBSUB_TOPIC Replace YOUR_PUBSUB_TOPIC with the actual Pub/Sub topic name that you want the Cloud Function to be triggered by.
