Google Big Query

Steps to integrate your Google Big Query storage with Atlan

Atlan natively supports Google Big Query, which allows you to seamlessly integrate your Big Query with your Atlan workspace.

๐Ÿ’ญ TL;DR

  1. Select the source, aka Big Query ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Provide your credentials โœ๏ธ

  3. Set up your configuration ๐Ÿ—„๏ธ

  4. Schedule automatic updates ๐Ÿ•‘

๐Ÿ“œ Prerequisites for a Big Query integration

  • Service Accounts: Service accounts are special Google accounts that can be used by applications to access Google APIs programmatically via OAuth 2.0. A service account uses an OAuth 2.0 flow that does not require additional authorization. Instead, it uses a key file that only your application can access

  • Project ID: The project ID is a unique identifier for a Google Cloud project.

๐ŸŒŸ Pro Tip: If you don't have this information handy, reach out to your cloud or data warehouse administrator to get these details before you get started!

๐Ÿ”‘ Big Query user permissions

Make sure you have permission to grant access to resources. For more information, visit "Granting, changing, and revoking access to resources".

Create and download your service account JSON file with the following permissions: roles/bigquery.dataViewer
