Import the module into your DAG file and instantiate it with your desired params.


instanceRequiredCloud SQL instance ID. This does not include the project ID.
bodyRequiredThe request body, as described in
project_idOptional, Google Cloud Project ID. If set to None or missing, the default project_id from the Google Cloud connection is used.
gcp_conn_idThe connection ID used to connect to Google Cloud.
api_versionAPI version used (e.g. v1beta4).
validate_bodyWhether the body should be validated. Defaults to True.
impersonation_chainOptional service account to impersonate using short-term credentials, or chained list of accounts required to get the access_token of the last account in the list, which will be impersonated in the request. If set as a string, the account must grant the originating account the Service Account Token Creator IAM role. If set as a sequence, the identities from the list must grant Service Account Token Creator IAM role to the directly preceding identity, with first account from the list granting this role to the originating account (templated).


Imports data into a Cloud SQL instance from a SQL dump or CSV file in Cloud Storage.


This operator is NOT idempotent for a CSV import. If the same file is imported multiple times, the imported data will be duplicated in the database. Moreover, if there are any unique constraints the duplicate import may result in an error.


This operator is idempotent for a SQL import if it was also exported by Cloud SQL. The exported SQL contains ‘DROP TABLE IF EXISTS’ statements for all tables to be imported.

If the import file was generated in a different way, idempotence is not guaranteed. It has to be ensured on the SQL file level.
