Get Started

To try Hasura with BigQuery, you'll need your own new or existing BigQuery database.

Here is how you can get started with Hasura and BigQuery:

Get started with BigQuery

Managing data with the Hasura Console

The Hasura Console is a web UI that allows you to manage your data and metadata. It is available at http://localhost:8080/console when you run Hasura locally, or from your project's Console endpoint when you use Hasura Cloud.

The data-management features (such as creating tables) are available in the Data tab. You can access your GraphQL API in the API tab and interact with it using the GraphiQL interface.

Console support

We recommend using your preferred BigQuery client instead. The Hasura Console is designed to be a tool for managing your GraphQL API, and not a full-fledged database management tool.

Minimum required IAM permissions

  • BigQuery queries through Hasura require the and permissions to send a job to the BigQuery servers.
  • The bigquery.tables.getData permission allows Hasura to query your BigQuery data source. Note that mutations are not currently supported for BigQuery, and so no corresponding updateData permission is required.
  • To use the Hasura Console to edit your data source, several different permissions may be required depending on your actions:
    • bigquery.datasets.create and bigquery.datasets.delete for creating and deleting datasets.
    • bigquery.routines.create, bigquery.routines.update, and bigquery.routines.delete for managing user-defined functions and stored procedures.
    • bigquery.table.create, bigquery.tables.list, bigquery.tables.get, bigquery.tables.delete, and bigquery.tables.update to manage the dataset definition.

Supported features

Hasura currently supports queries and relationships on BigQuery.
