Code Sample

C#

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


using Google.Cloud.BigQuery.V2;
using System;

public class BigQueryDeleteDataset
{
    public void DeleteDataset(
        string projectId = "your-project-id",
        string datasetId = "your_empty_dataset"
    )
    {
        BigQueryClient client = BigQueryClient.Create(projectId);
        // Delete a dataset that does not contain any tables
        client.DeleteDataset(datasetId: datasetId);
        Console.WriteLine($"Dataset {datasetId} deleted.");
    }
}

Go

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

import (
	"context"
	"fmt"

	"cloud.google.com/go/bigquery"
)

// deleteDataset demonstrates the deletion of an empty dataset.
func deleteDataset(projectID, datasetID string) error {
	// projectID := "my-project-id"
	// datasetID := "mydataset"
	ctx := context.Background()

	client, err := bigquery.NewClient(ctx, projectID)
	if err != nil {
		return fmt.Errorf("bigquery.NewClient: %v", err)
	}
	defer client.Close()

	// To recursively delete a dataset and contents, use DeleteWithContents.
	if err := client.Dataset(datasetID).Delete(ctx); err != nil {
		return fmt.Errorf("Delete: %v", err)
	}
	return nil
}

Java

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

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 deleteDataset() {
  // Deletes a dataset named "my_dataset".

  /**
   * TODO(developer): Uncomment the following lines before running the sample.
   */
  // const datasetId = 'my_dataset';

  // Create a reference to the existing dataset
  const dataset = bigquery.dataset(datasetId);

  // Delete the dataset and its contents
  await dataset.delete({force: true});
  console.log(`Dataset ${dataset.id} deleted.`);
}

PHP

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

use Google\Cloud\BigQuery\BigQueryClient;

/** Uncomment and populate these variables in your code */
// $projectId = 'The Google project ID';
// $datasetId = 'The BigQuery dataset ID';

$bigQuery = new BigQueryClient([
    'projectId' => $projectId,
]);
$dataset = $bigQuery->dataset($datasetId);
$table = $dataset->delete();
printf('Deleted dataset %s' . PHP_EOL, $datasetId);

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.


from google.cloud import bigquery

# Construct a BigQuery client object.
client = bigquery.Client()

# TODO(developer): Set model_id to the ID of the model to fetch.
# dataset_id = 'your-project.your_dataset'

# Use the delete_contents parameter to delete a dataset and its contents.
# Use the not_found_ok parameter to not receive an error if the dataset has already been deleted.
client.delete_dataset(
    dataset_id, delete_contents=True, not_found_ok=True
)  # Make an API request.

print("Deleted dataset '{}'.".format(dataset_id))
