BigQuery

BigQuery is a wrapper around the Google api ruby gem designed to make interacting with BigQuery easier.

Install

gem install bigquery

Authorization

Only service accounts are supported right now. https://developers.google.com/accounts/docs/OAuth2#serviceaccount

Available methods

  • query
  • tables
  • load
  • tables_formatted
  • job
  • jobs
  • insert_job
  • refresh_auth

Example

require 'big_query'

opts = {}
opts['client_id']     = '1234.apps.googleusercontent.com'
opts['service_email'] = '1234@developer.gserviceaccount.com'
opts['key']           = '/path/to/somekeyfile-privatekey.p12'
opts['project_id']    = '54321'
opts['dataset']       = 'yourdataset'

bq = BigQuery::Client.new(opts)

puts bq.tables

Tables

List tables in dataset

bq.tables

List table names

bq.tables_formatted

Fetch table data

bq.table_data('table_name')

Delete exiting table

bq.delete_table('test123')

Create table. First param is the table name second one is the table schema defined with the following format

{
    field_name: {
        type: 'TYPE_VALUE BETWEEN (STRING, INTEGER, FLOAT, BOOLEAN, RECORD, TIMESTAMP)',
        mode: 'MODE_VALUE BETWEEN (NULLABLE, REQUIRED, REPEATED)'
    },
    other_field_name: { ... }
}

As this example defines

table_name = 'test123'
table_schema = { id: { type: 'INTEGER' },
                 name: { type: 'STRING' } }
bq.create_table(table_name, table_schema)

Describe table schema

bq.describe_table('table_name')

Querying

bq.query("SELECT * FROM [#{config['dataset']}.table_name] LIMIT 1")

Inserting

Insert a single row

bq.insert('table_name', 'id' => 123, 'type' => 'Task')

Batch insert an array of rows. See bigquery docs for limitations.

data = [{'id' => 123, 'type' => 'Foo'}, {'id' => 321, 'type' => 'Bar'}]
bq.insert('table_name', data)

Keys

To get the keys you need to have a:

1- Goto your project google api access

https://code.google.com/apis/console/b/0/?noredirect&pli=1#project:YOUR_PROJECT_ID:access

2- Create a new client-ID for service_account 3- Download de key file

Now you have everything:

  • client_id: API access client-ID
  • service_email: API access Email address
  • key: API access key file path
  • project_id: your google API project id
  • dataset: your big query dataset name

Troubleshooting

If you're getting an "invalid_grant" error it usually means your system clock is off.

If you're getting unauthorized requested but you've been able to successfully connect before, you need to refresh your auth by running the "refresh_auth" method.

How to run test

Before run test, you must create file named .bigquery_settings.yml on root of this repository. .bigquery_settings.yml must include following infomation.

client_id:     '1234.apps.googleusercontent.com'
service_email: '1234@developer.gserviceaccount.com'
key:           '/path/to/somekeyfile-privatekey.p12'
project_id:    '54321'
dataset:       'yourdataset'
faraday_option:
  timeout: 999

Then run tests via rake.

$ bundle install && bundle exec rake test
