What does Atlan crawl from Google BigQuery?

Once you have crawled Google BigQuery, you can use connector-specific filters for quick asset discovery. The following filters are currently supported for these assets:

  • Tables β€” BigQuery labels filter

Atlan does not run any table scans. Atlan leverages the table preview options from Google BigQuery that allow you to view data for free and without affecting any quotas using the tabledata.list API. Hence, table asset previews in Atlan are already cost-optimized. However, this does not apply to views and materialized views.

For Google BigQuery views and materialized views, Atlan will send you a cost nudge before viewing a sample data preview. This will inform you about the precise bytes that will be spent during the execution of the query, helping you decide if you would still like to run the preview.
