Google BigQuery


Starting August 30, 2023, we will remove the ability to create new data sources using the Google BigQuery Native Connector. Support for the Google BigQuery Native Connector will cease on December 1, 2023, as set out in Alation’s Support Policy. See the Transition from Native to OCF Connectors announcement in Alation Community (requires login to Community).

If you are using Google BigQuery as a data source, this section describes the prerequisites, authentication, and account setup steps needed to access the data source.

Alation uses a Google-authorized driver developed by Simba Technologies to connect to Google BigQuery data sources.
