Just wondering if you ever found a solution to this annoying error?

I have the same problem, and need to get it fixed as soon as possible.

Have been in touch with, but if anyone has any good ideas in the meantime please let me know!

Many thanks, Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,


I have not be able to find a solution to this specific error but have heard that the newer version 2019.1 may have improved the BigQuery connection.


However, others in my organization have found a nice workaround where you upload to a .csv to a Google Cloud storage bucket and then append the data to a pre-defined BigQuery table. I found another post related to this topic that may be helpful.


Best of luck!

I ended up scrapping the BigQuery tool (it's definitely not ready for prime time... I discovered a second bug that it won't allow for dynamic SQL statements to be passed in via control parameter) and just using the Python tool to connect.


I have upgraded to 2019.1.6 and it seems to be working now.

Maybe they're getting there…?!
