Google BigQuery

This Integration requires Fides Cloud or Fides Enterprise. For more information, talk to our solutions team. (opens in a new tab)

Google BigQuery (opens in a new tab) is a fully managed, highly scalable, and serverless data warehouse and analytics platform that enables organizations to store, query, and analyze massive amounts of data with ease.


In order to integrate with Google BigQuery, you'll need to download or copy a Service Account Key file.

To find this file, please:

  1. Log into the Google Cloud Console (opens in a new tab).
  2. Navigate to IAM & AdminService Accounts and locate an account with appropriate permissions.
  3. In the Actions column for the account, click on the three dots icon (⋮) and select Manage keys.
  4. Create a new key (JSON) for use with Fides and the key file will be downloaded to your computer.
  5. Open the file and copy the contents to paste into the integration form.

Configuring a dataset

A dataset is required to configure an integration to this database. A dataset is a configuration file that tell Fides how to query and update data in the database. To learn more about how to create and manage datasets, please see our Managing datasets guide.

An example BigQuery dataset can be viewed in Github (opens in a new tab).
