BigQuery

ToolJet can connect to BigQuery databases to run BigQuery queries.

Connection

Please refer this link to enable BigQuery API in Google Cloud Console.

Create Service Account and key, then get your configs downloaded as JSON

To add a new BigQuery, click on the + button on data sources panel at the left-bottom corner of the app editor. Select BigQuery from the modal that pops up.

ToolJet requires the config json downloaded from your account to connect to BigQuery. Paste the json into the Private key field.

The json looks like:
