This document describes how to update dataset properties in BigQuery. After creating a dataset, you can update the following dataset properties.
At a minimum, to update dataset properties, you must be granted bigquery. The following predefined Cloud IAM roles include bigquery. In addition, if a user has bigquery. In the Details page, click the pencil icon next to Description to edit the description text. In the dialog, enter a description in the box or edit the existing description. Click Update to save the new description text. On the Dataset Details page, in the Description section, click Describe this dataset to open the description box if the dataset has no description.
Otherwise, click the existing description text. Enter a description in the box or edit the existing description. When you click away from the box, the text is saved. Issue the bq update command with the --description flag. Enter the following command to change the description of mydataset to "Description of mydataset. Call datasets. Because the datasets.
Before trying this sample, follow the Node. For more information, see the BigQuery Node. You can set a default table expiration time at the dataset level, or you can set a table's expiration time when the table is created.
If you set the expiration when the table is created, the dataset's default table expiration is ignored. If you do not set a default table expiration at the dataset level, and you do not set a table expiration when the table is created, the table never expires and you must delete the table manually. The value for default table expiration is expressed differently depending on where the value is set.
Use the method that gives you the appropriate level of granularity:. In the Details page, click the pencil icon next to Dataset info to edit the expiration. In the Dataset info dialog, in the Default table expiration section, enter a value for Number of days after table creation.
In the Update Expiration dialog, for Data expirationclick In and enter the expiration time in days. The default value is Never. Enter the following command to set the default table expiration for new tables created in mydataset to two hours seconds from the current time. The dataset is in your default project. The dataset is in myotherprojectnot your default project.
I added an additional, new DataSet to my report and have been getting this cryptic error ever since. The issue was that when the report had elements setup using the first data set I'd defined when the report was created. Adding an additional data set reset the DataSetName value to be blank. In this case for my Table but it could be for a List, etc. Most specifically, take a look at the Dataset section. See if there are some old ones that are still there.
You can edit this file directly, but be careful what you do. Make sure to validate against the RDLC file's schema. I had a bit of trouble finding the correct properties window that contained this value, so I will add the following:. Learn more. Asked 10 years, 8 months ago. Active 9 years, 5 months ago.

Updating dataset properties
To learn how to set the location for your dataset, see Creating datasets. For information on regional pricing for BigQuery, see the Pricing page.
A multi-region is a large geographic area, such as the United States, that contains two or more geographic places. You specify a location for storing your BigQuery data when you create a dataset. After you create the dataset, the location cannot be changed, but you can copy the dataset to a different locationor manually move recreate the dataset in a different location.
BigQuery processes queries in the same location as the dataset that contains the tables you're querying. BigQuery stores your data in the selected location in accordance with the Service Specific Terms. When loading data, querying data, or exporting data, BigQuery determines the location to run the job based on the datasets referenced in the request.
For example, if a query references a table in a dataset stored in the asia-northeast1 region, the query job will run in that region. If a query does not reference any tables or other resources contained within datasets, and no destination table is provided, the query job will run in the location of the project's flat-rate reservation. If the project does not have a flat-rate reservation, the job runs in the US region. If more than one flat-rate reservation is associated with the project, the location of the reservation with the largest number of slots is where the job runs.
BigQuery returns an error if the specified location does not match the location of the datasets in the request. For more information on Cloud Storage locations, see Bucket locations in the Cloud Storage documentation. You cannot change the location of a dataset after it is created, but you can make a copy of the dataset. You cannot move a dataset from one location to another, but you can manually move recreate a dataset. To see steps for copying a dataset, including across regions, see Copying datasets.
Export the data from your BigQuery tables to a regional or multi-region Cloud Storage bucket in the same location as your dataset. For example, if your dataset is in the EU multi-region location, export your data into a regional or multi-region bucket in the EU. There are no charges for exporting data from BigQuery, but you do incur charges for storing the exported data in Cloud Storage.
BigQuery exports are subject to the limits on export jobs. Copy or move the data from your Cloud Storage bucket to a regional or multi-region bucket in the new location.
For example, if you are moving your data from the US multi-region location to the Tokyo regional location, you would transfer the data to a regional bucket in Tokyo. For information on transferring Cloud Storage objects, see Renaming, copying, and moving objects in the Cloud Storage documentation. Note that transferring data between regions incurs network egress charges in Cloud Storage.
After you transfer the data to a Cloud Storage bucket in the new location, create a new BigQuery dataset in the new location. Then, load your data from the Cloud Storage bucket into BigQuery. You are not charged for loading the data into BigQuery, but you will incur charges for storing the data in Cloud Storage until you delete the data or the bucket. You are also charged for storing the data in BigQuery after it is loaded.
Loading data into BigQuery is subject to the limits on load jobs. For more information on using Cloud Storage to store and move large datasets, see Using Cloud Storage with big data. A BigQuery dataset's locality is specified when you create a destination dataset to store the data transferred by the BigQuery Data Transfer Service. When you set up a transfer, the transfer configuration itself is set to the same location as the destination dataset.

While our project grows, at some point we realized that we need to create new projects and reorganize our dataset. One case is that we need to isolate one dataset from others into another new project. I know that I can do it by copying tables one by one through API and then delete the old ones.
But when it comes to over a thousand of tables, it's really consumes a lot of time as the copying api is executed as a job and it takes time. Is it possible to just change reference or path of a dataset? Follow up I tried copy tables using batch request. I got OK in all request, but the tables just didn't get copied. I wonder why and how to get the real result. Here's my code:. Nope, there's currently no move or rename operation in BigQuery. The best way to move your data is to copy it and delete the original.
Follow-up answer : Your batch request created the copy jobs, but you need to wait for them to complete and then observe the result.
You can use the BigQuery web UI or run "bq ls -j" from the command line to see recent jobs. You can set options that will control how many tables to copy, how many jobs run concurrently and where to store the intermediate data in Cloud Storage. The destination dataset must already exist but this means you'll be able to copy data between locations too US, EU, Asia etc.
The copy dataset UI is similar to copy table. Just click "copy dataset" button from the source dataset, and specify the destination dataset in the pop-up form. See screenshot below. Check out the public documentation for more use cases. Learn more.Parent topic: Using the BigQuery Handler. A data type conversion from the column value in the trail file to the corresponding Java type representing the BigQuery column type in the BigQuery Handler is required.
Parent topic: Detailing the Functionality. When the handler is configured to run with Audit log mode, the data is pushed into Google BigQuery without a unique id and primary key. As a result, Google BigQuery is not able to merge different operations on the same row. Also, the order in which the audit log is displayed in the BigQuery data set is not deterministic. To overcome these limitations, you need to specify optype and position in the meta columns template for the handler.
This adds two columns of the same names in the schema for the table in Google BigQuery. For example:. The optype is important to determine the operation type for the row in the audit log. This causes the handler to write data into Google BigQuery specifying a unique id and primary key for each row. As a result, Google BigQuery is able to merge different operations on the same row.
Google BigQuery processes every operation as an insert for each row. As a result, there is a deleted column added to the schema for the table in this mode of operation. When the handler encounters a delete operation on a row, it inserts the row into Google BigQuery and sets the deleted column to true. The following explains how insert, update, and delete operations are interpreted by the handler depending on the mode of operation:.
Both these rows have the same position in the BigQuery table, which helps to identify it as a primary key operation and not a separate delete and insert operation. If the row already exists in Google BigQuery, then an insert operation is processed as an update. The handler sets the deleted column to false. If the row already exists in Google BigQuery, then an update operation is processed as update.Job errors are represented in the status object when calling jobs.
The following table lists possible error codes that return when making a request to the BigQuery API. The "Error code" column below maps to the reason property in the error object. If you use the bq command-line tool to check job status, the error object is not returned by default.
If you receive an HTTP response code that doesn't appear in the list below, the response code indicates an issue or an expected result with the HTTP request. For example, a error indicates there is an issue with your network connection. If you receive this error when making a jobs. In this situation, you'll need to retry the job. If you believe that your project did not exceed one of these limits, please contact support. For example:. The following sections discuss how to troubleshoot errors that occur when you stream data into BigQuery.
If you receive a failure HTTP response code such as a network error, there's no way to tell if the streaming insert succeeded. If you try to simply re-send the request, you might end up with duplicated rows in your table.
To help protect your table against duplication, set the insertId property when sending your request. BigQuery uses the insertId property for de-duplication. If you receive a permission error, an invalid table name error or an exceeded quota error, no rows are inserted and the entire request fails.
Even if you receive a success HTTP response code, you'll need to check the insertErrors property of the response to determine if the row insertions were successful, because it's possible that BigQuery was only partially successful at inserting the rows.
If the insertErrors property is an empty list, all of the rows inserted successfully. Otherwise, except in cases where there was a schema mismatch in any of the rows, rows indicated in the insertErrors property were not inserted, and all other rows were inserted successfully.
The errors property contains detailed information about why each unsuccessful row failed. The index property indicates the 0-based row index of the request that the error applies to. If BigQuery encounters a schema mismatch on individual rows in the request, none of the rows are inserted and an insertErrors entry is returned for each row, even the rows that did not have a schema mismatch.
Rows that did not have a schema mismatch will have an error with the reason property set to stoppedand can be re-sent as-is. Rows that failed include detailed information about the schema mismatch. Because BigQuery's streaming API is designed for high insertion rates, modifications to the underlying table metadata exhibit are eventually consistent when interacting with the streaming system. In most cases metadata changes are propagated within minutes, but during this period API responses may reflect the inconsistent state of the table.
Streaming inserts reside temporarily in the streaming buffer, which has different availability characteristics than managed storage. Certain operations in BigQuery do not interact with the streaming buffer, such as table copy jobs and API methods like tabledata.
As such, recent streaming data will not be present in the destination table or output. Except as otherwise noted, the content of this page is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4. For details, see the Google Developers Site Policies.

The fully-qualified unique name of the dataset in the format projectId:datasetId. The dataset name without the project name is given in the datasetId field. When creating a new dataset, leave this field blank, and instead specify the datasetId field. A URL that can be used to access the resource again.
The default lifetime of all tables in the dataset, in milliseconds The minimum value is milliseconds one hour. Once this property is set, all newly-created tables in the dataset will have an expirationTime property set to the creation time plus the value in this property, and changing the value will only affect new tables, not existing ones. When the expirationTime for a given table is reached, that table will be deleted automatically. If a table's expirationTime is modified or removed before the table expires, or if you provide an explicit expirationTime when creating a table, that value takes precedence over the default expiration time indicated by this property.
When new time-partitioned tables are created in a dataset where this property is set, the table will inherit this value, propagated as the TimePartitioning. If you set TimePartitioning. When creating a partitioned table, if defaultPartitionExpirationMs is set, the defaultTableExpirationMs value is ignored and the table will not be inherit a table expiration deadline.
The labels associated with this dataset. You can use these to organize and group your datasets. You can set this property when inserting or updating a dataset.GDELT & BigQuery: Understand the world
See Creating and Updating Dataset Labels for more information. An object containing a list of "key": value pairs. An array of objects that define dataset access for one or more entities. You can set this property when inserting or updating a dataset in order to control who is allowed to access the data. If unspecified at dataset creation time, BigQuery adds default dataset access for the following entities: access. For example: fred example.
Any users signed in with the domain specified will be granted the specified access. Example: "example. Possible values include: projectOwners: Owners of the enclosing project. Maps to similarly-named IAM members.
Queries executed against that view will have read access to tables in this dataset. The role field is not required when this field is set. If that view is updated by any user, access to the view needs to be granted again via an update operation. The date when this dataset or any of its tables was last modified, in milliseconds since the epoch.
The geographic location where the dataset should reside. Possible values include EU and US. The default value is US. The default encryption key for all tables in the dataset. Once this property is set, all newly-created partitioned tables in the dataset will have encryption key set to this value, unless table creation request or query overrides the key.
