With BigQuery modules in Make, you can monitor tables and completed query jobs, and create, retrieve, update, or delete datasets and tables in your BigQuery account.

To use the BigQuery modules, you must have a Google account and a project created. You can create an account at Google Cloud Platform.

Refer to the BigQuery API Documentation for a list of available endpoints.


Make's use and transfer of information received from Google APIs to any other app will adhere to Google API Services User Data Policy.
