Add Job ID in the error output of `bq_perform_upload` #252

When I run bq_perform_upload I get an error:

Running job [-] 4s
Error: Error while reading data, error message: JSON table encountered too many errors, giving up.
Rows: 88477; errors: 1. Please look into the error stream for more details. [invalid]

Which does not give me details about the job, though it is available in the environment:

 job <- bigrquery::bq_perform_upload(x = tbl, values = data, 
      write_disposition = write.disposition, create_disposition = "CREATE_IF_NEEDED")
    res <- bq_job_wait(job)

There are two options to make debugging possible:

  • Add job id into Running Job ... progress message
  • Catch exception and append a new message with Job Id

This will allow me to get error details in terminal:

bq --format=prettyjson show -j {job_id}

I think displaying the job id in the progress message would be ideal. Do you want to do a PR?

I did it because I needed a small programming problems. But I'll restrain myself from fixing any more!
