Three ways of receiving events in Cloud Run

Cloud Run and Eventarc is a great combination for building event-driven services with different event routing options. There are two trigger types (Audit Logs and Pub/Sub) to choose from in Eventarc.

If you wanted to, you could skip Eventarc and read messages directly from Pub/Sub in Cloud Run.
