    Hi Bryan,

    Yes, those are definitely ways. Structs are used for bundling groups of variables into a single variable so that it's easier to pass them around as task inputs. Another option is creating a list of file paths and passing it to the task to be localized by gsutil as described here and in the spec here.
    Keep in mind that using these options will require the whole files to be localized instead of being streamed to the task. If your tool(s) are able to stream the files, that would be a good option as well. 

    Many thanks,
