Google BigQuery setup instructions

Step 1: Go to and sign in with a Google Account

Step 2: You will be provided with a $300 credit initially which can be extended by Google on a case-to-case basis.

Step 3: Create a BigQuery project on Google Console and note the project-id. Click and expand 'Select a Project' and create a new dedicated project for Daton.

Step 6: Note the BigQuery project id and provide the same while integrating the BigQuery data warehouse on Daton.
