Just have 2 VMs and 2 different appengine endpoints. I can't really help with the buckets as I haven't used that API yet. I'm curious though what your use-case for buckets is, I never found any use for them (explicitely) myself.

Hi again,

my use case doesn't involve VMs. I need to send push notifications and update my database periodically.That's why i need two separate cron jobs and i'm using a bucket to store the scripts responsible for doing the work. Is there an other approach to do this ? or does my app.yaml file need to contain a script for both jobs ? i read the documentations multiple times and couldn't fully understand how this work.

This was about using VMs to scale down. I don't know every single feature of GCP from memory. Maybe you'll have more luck on a GCP slack channel?
