Node.js

Before trying this sample, follow the Node.js setup instructions in the BigQuery Quickstart Using Client Libraries. For more information, see the BigQuery Node.js API reference documentation.

// Import the Google Cloud client library
const {BigQuery} = require('@google-cloud/bigquery');
const bigquery = new BigQuery();

async function createTableRangePartitioned() {

  // in "my_dataset".

   * TODO(developer): Uncomment the following lines before running the sample.
   */

  // const tableId = "my_table";

  const schema = [
    {name: 'fullName', type: 'STRING'},
    {name: 'city', type: 'STRING'},
    {name: 'zipcode', type: 'INTEGER'},
  ];

  // To use integer range partitioning, select a top-level REQUIRED or
  // NULLABLE column with INTEGER / INT64 data type. Values that are
  // outside of the range of the table will go into the UNPARTITIONED
  // partition. Null values will be in the NULL partition.
  const rangePartition = {
    field: 'zipcode',
    range: {
      start: 0,
      end: 100000,
      interval: 10,
    },
  };

  // For all options, see https://cloud.google.com/bigquery/docs/reference/v2/tables#resource
  const options = {
    schema: schema,
    rangePartitioning: rangePartition,
  };

  // Create a new table in the dataset
  const [table] = await bigquery

Python

Before trying this sample, follow the Python setup instructions in the BigQuery Quickstart Using Client Libraries. For more information, see the BigQuery Python API reference documentation.

# TODO(developer): Set table_id to the ID of the table to create.
# table_id = "your-project.your_dataset.your_table_name"

    bigquery.SchemaField("full_name", "STRING"),
    bigquery.SchemaField("city", "STRING"),
    bigquery.SchemaField("zipcode", "INTEGER"),
]

table = bigquery.Table(table_id, schema=schema)
table.range_partitioning = bigquery.RangePartitioning(
    # To use integer range partitioning, select a top-level REQUIRED /
    # NULLABLE column with INTEGER / INT64 data type.
    field="zipcode",
    range_=bigquery.PartitionRange(start=0, end=100000, interval=10),
)
table = client.create_table(table)  # Make an API request.
print(
