Connecting to BigQuery


SummaryInstructions on authenticating and configuring BigQuery as an output in Alooma.

Once you've granted access to your project, you'll need to indicate the cluster information for Alooma to connect to.

  1. Click on the Output node of the Plumbing page.

  2. If it is not already selected, choose the Settings tab.

  3. You'll need to authenticate before you can get started. Click Sign in with Google and log in with the user you'd like Alooma to use, keeping in mind the permissions required. Don't worry - you'll be able to switch users later on if you want.

  4. Select the project and dataset from the drop-down menus:

    • The list of projects includes those for which the authenticated user has permission (more about projects).

    • The default dataset name specifies where tables will be created by default, though you'll be able to create them in any dataset we have access to.

  5. Save the changes.

If your BigQuery connection is unsuccessful you'll see an error message right away.

That's it! You've created a BigQuery output. Alooma can now connect to your target BigQuery.
