Code sample

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.

import com.google.cloud.bigquery.BigQuery;
import com.google.cloud.bigquery.BigQueryException;
import com.google.cloud.bigquery.BigQueryOptions;
import com.google.cloud.bigquery.TableId;

// Sample to delete materialized view
public class DeleteMaterializedView {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    // TODO(developer): Replace these variables before running the sample.
    String datasetName = "MY_DATASET_NAME";
    String materializedViewName = "MY_MATERIALIZED_VIEW_NAME";
    deleteMaterializedView(datasetName, materializedViewName);
  }

  public static void deleteMaterializedView(String datasetName, String materializedViewName) {
    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, materializedViewName);

      boolean success = bigquery.delete(tableId);
      if (success) {
        System.out.println("Materialized view deleted successfully");
      } else {
        System.out.println("Materialized view was not found");
      }
    } catch (BigQueryException e) {
      System.out.println("Materialized view was not found. \n" + e.toString());
    }
  }
}

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

bigquery_client = bigquery.Client()

view_id = "my-project.my_dataset.my_materialized_view"
# Make an API request to delete the materialized view.
bigquery_client.delete_table(view_id)
