Starburst BigQuery connector#

The Starburst BigQuery connector is an extended, tested and fully supported version of the BigQuery connector with identical configuration and usage.



The connector configuration is similar to the configuration for the base BigQuery connector, with the following additional properties:

BigQuery configuration properties#

Property name



Allow accessing other projects in BigQuery by including the project id with the schema name in queries:

    SELECT *
    FROM catalog."project-id.dataset".table

Defaults to false.


Frequency of checks for project names as duration. Defaults to 30m

SQL support#

The connector supports all of the SQL statements listed in the BigQuery connector documentation.

Table statistics#

BigQuery does not expose table statistics, and the connector can therefore not use cost based optimizations to improve query processing performance based on the actual data in the data source.
