Ensure that all the deployed cloud functions are in 'active' mode

Google Cloud Functions is a serverless, event-driven computing service within Google Cloud Platform. Deployments work by uploading an archive containing your function's source code to a Google Cloud Storage bucket. When deploying, Cloud Functions looks for particular files, depending on your runtime. Before your function's deployment is finalized, Cloud Functions will send your function a test request to confirm that it deployed successfully.
