ImportError: cannot import name 'collections_abc'



Environment Details

When trying to import the Google Cloud BigQuery libraries  v1.23.0 through the Python tool, the import fails. 

  • Alteryx Designer
    • All Versions
  • Third-Party product - Google Cloud BigQuery python library 
    • Version 1.23.0


This is a known issue when importing Google Cloud BigQuery library version 1.23.0.


If the current version you have installed is v1.23.0, it seems to be a known issue reported here:  which is fixed in 1.23.1 version:
It looks like the workaround was to explicitly install an updated version of six (1.13.0 instead of 1.11.0).

Update to Google Big Query library to 1.15.0 and restart Designer.
