    String datasetName = "MY_DATASET_NAME";

    createIamPolicy(datasetName, tableName);

  public static void createIamPolicy(String datasetName, String tableName) {
    try {
      // Initialize client that will be used to send requests. This client only needs to be created
      // once, and can be reused for multiple requests.
      BigQuery bigquery = BigQueryOptions.getDefaultInstance().getService();

      TableId tableId = TableId.of(datasetName, tableName);

      Policy policy = bigquery.getIamPolicy(tableId);
          .addIdentity(Role.of("roles/bigquery.dataViewer"), Identity.allUsers())
      bigquery.setIamPolicy(tableId, policy);
      System.out.println("Iam policy created successfully");
    } catch (BigQueryException e) {
      System.out.println("Iam policy was not created. \n" + e.toString());
