Connect to a Google Big Query dataset to integrate with your Anaplan model. 

There's a limit of 3GB data volume for integrations when you use CloudWorks with BigQuery. You can also view Introduction to tables to understand table limitations. At a minimum, the following BigQuery permissions are required:

Project level permissions

  • roles/bigquery.jobUser
  • roles/bigquery.User

Permissions to import from BigQuery

  • roles/bigquery.dataViewer role on the table or the whole dataset

Permissions to export to BigQuery

  • roles/bigquery.dataEditor role on the table or the whole dataset

These required permissions are to load or edit table data, or to overwrite a table.

See BigQuery required permissions(opens external page).
